Adapting Lying in Wait
a conversation with playwright Matthew Spangler and author Liz Nugent

Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 2:15pm to 3:15pm

In partnership with Hinterland.

The theatrical adaptation sessions of Matt Spangler (The Kite Runner) have become a feature of the Hinterland (Kells) festival. This time it's slightly different in that Matt only has to travel from Mountain View to explain how he would approach adapting Liz Nugent's chiller Lying in Wait ('crackles and snaps like a bonfire on a winter's night' -- A.J.Finn). Liz will be looking on, so no pressure really.
