ABOUT THE SHOW

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 present 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.


‘Dear Readers: Everything you’ve ever asked me about Gilead and its inner workings in the inspiration for this book. Well, almost everything! The other inspiration is the world we’ve been living in.’



With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.
