On Tuesday, September 10th, the wait will be 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 by Vintage on 10 September.


Tickets: $15 
(Fees may apply)

Margaret Atwood: Live in Cinema

7 guys. Multiple ways of making music using only their voices. What they do is far more than a cappella. They are a band without a band.

Having met in school and gospel choir they quickly discovered that they were doing more than just singing songs, they all discovered perfect hypervocal capabilities. That’s why Naturally 7 call their music “vocal play.” Every band member has his preferred style, or favorite songs and together they can interpret them all. Naturally 7 summon up soul, rap, rock and folk in one harmonious balance.

“Naturally 7 croons like a choir of angels, but they can also simulate a full orchestra or a pop-rock band…using just their voices.”

Nowadays they have famous fans such as Michael Bublé (whom they joined on 3 world tours), Coldpay (“Fix You” is one of the finest adaptions of music you can imagine), Quincy Jones (who called them “best a cappella band worldwide”), Herbie Hancock (listen to their H. Hancock medley) and many others.

Their repertoire is a mix of their own compositions and cover versions.

This year they are celebrating their 20th anniversary which will be accompanied by new releases and remixes of famous hits (such as “Wall of Sound”). They happily participated in CBS’ new TV format World’s Best which will air from February to April 2019. And of course: they tour around the world!

Naturally 7 are:
“Ricky“ Lee Ricardo Cort
Rod Eldridge
Kelvin “Kelz“ Mitchell
Sean Simmonds
Dwight Stewart
Roger Thomas
Warren Thomas
