NT Live presents Margaret Atwood

On Tuesday, September 10th, the wait is 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 is 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.

The Testaments will be published worldwide on 10 September.

Luke Wright & Friends

This year for the joint Bungay Library and Fisher Theatre Fundraiser, Luke Wright has enlisted the help of two of his poetry pals. You’ll remember John Osborne (writer of Radio 4’s John Peel’s Shed and Sky1’s After Hours) from last year for the colloquial beauty and wry humour of his poems. This year we’ve also got Martin Rowson. Best known as The Guardian’s top political cartoonist, Rowson is also a fine poet, filling his verse with the same visceral anger and satirical panache as he does his artwork. All proceeds go to Bungay Library and the Fisher Theatre. Do a “good” thing and be entertained, an ideal activity for the festive season.

R.E.M Stipe

An ‘Automatic for the People’ show plus hits & favorites.

R.E.M. remain one of the world’s most enigmatic stadium rock bands.  With a string of peerless albums running forward from the 80s; one eye on the underground and one eye on the soaring chorus; it’s safe to say we will never see their like again.  

Automatic for the People; 1992 and R.E.M. were the biggest, most important rock band in America.  Their multi-platinum smash, 25 years later, remains a brooding, transitional album.  Twelve nakedly emotional songs that offer a pristine portrait of the original four-piece formation at its absolute prime.  R.E.M. \ stipe will perform the whole album, in its original running order, with the attention to detail that defines the band.

Whether it’s laying major festivals or appearing on the One Show, performing for Michael Stipe himself, Stipe are the definitive R.E.M. tribute with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the back catalogue.  The boys from Athens’ legacy is in good hands.
