Margaret Atwood 'Live': The Testaments

THE TESTAMENTS, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, will be revealed in a global cinematic event. With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests including Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins (The Shape Of Water, Happy Go Lucky), Ann Dowd (TV's The Handmaid's Tale, Hereditary) and Lily James (Yesterday).

The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive cinema broadcast filmed live. The intimate evening will be a celebration of Atwood’s work. A number of remarkable actors (to be announced) will read from The Testaments, allowing audiences to be the first to discover the new book. Exclusive documentary content with rare archive will open a window on to Atwood’s rich and varied career. The Handmaid’s Tale has come to represent a powerful symbol against misogyny and oppression and the evening will reflect on the real-world events that inspired the original story and the alarming political climate which has, in part, inspired this sequel. An evening of conversation and performance filmed live from the stage of the National Theatre, with privileged access to this iconic author.

‘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. Margaret Atwood’
