Not Always A Happy Ending: Maxine Peake reads from Hamlet and Happy Days
The pandemic has taught us all some hard lessons and many of us feel more fragile after this long period of threat. More than ever we know not everything has a happy ending, and but where do we get the resilience to laugh in face of difficulties?
Join Maxine Peake in Conversation with The Reader’s Founder, Jane Davis, for an afternoon of readings and thought about living without happy endings. Maxine will read from two of her biggest stage successes – Hamlet, and Winnie from Samuel Beckett’s Happy Days, and she’ll show and talk about some scenes from her 2017 film, Funny Cow.
This event is available both in person and online. If you choose an online ticket, your session will take place on Zoom.
