An interview with Margeret Atwood about the sequal to “The Handmaid’s Tale”
Join us for the literary event of the year as “The Handmaid’s Tale” author Margaret Atwood unveils her highly anticipated sequel, “The Testaments”, live onstage at the Lyttelton Theater in London.
An event 34 years in the making!
On Tuesday, September 10th, the wait will be over….The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is revealed. The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive live cinema broadcast, as Fane Productions presents an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.
The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression.
Live from the London stage, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.
Lily James will be the special guest for Margaret Atwood Live on Tuesday, September 10. Lily James, most recently seen on stage starring in Ivo van Hove’s All About Eve is currently lighting up cinema screens in Danny Boyle’s movie Yesterday.
