Limited sessions: Thursday, September 19 at 6.45PM. Friday, September 20 at 6.45PM. Saturday, September 21 at 4.30PM and Sunday September 22 at 2.30PM.

The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, will be revealed in a global cinematic event. 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.
