Tony Schumacher in Conversation
It is our great pleasure to welcome Liverpool author and screenwriter Tony Schumacher to this year's Gravity festival.
Tony’s ground-breaking BBC1 drama, The Responder, featured a bravura performance from Martin Freeman as Chris, an unhappily corrupt police officer who wants to be a good man. Tony drew on his experience of breakdown to show the pressures on a man unable to talk about what he was going through.
The Reader’s Young Person’s Mentor, Greg Harwood-Jenkins has experienced tough times of his own, and might easily have previously been one of the characters in Tony’s drama. In this intimate and frank conversation, Tony and Greg will select some scenes to show and discuss, while opening up about what it is like to be a man with something on his mind that needs talking about.
