National Theatre Live: An Evening With Margaret Atwood: Recorded Screening

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

On Tuesday September 10, The Testaments, Margaret Atwoods highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaids Tale, is revealed. The event will be celebrated with an exclusive cinema broadcast, as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor. The publication of Atwoods The Handmaids Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of womens rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Filmed live from the stage of the National Theatre in London, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwoods remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.
