On Tuesday, September 10th, the wait will be over… The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, will be released. 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.
1985’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series of the same name have together created a cultural phenomenon, as Atwood’s handmaids have become a symbol for reproductive rights. 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 Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and the question of why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story 34 years later.
Tickets are $18, or $15 for Pickford members.
