Adapting STRIKING BACK
Kellie Hughes and Matt Spangler in conversation

Sunday, November 10, 2019 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

In partnership with Hinterland.

Kellie Hughes (Irish theatre director) and Matt Spangler (The Kite Runner) discuss their stage adaptation of Mary Manning's saga of her role in the 1984 anti-Apartheid supermarket produce strike, a creative process that began at Hinterland (Kells) in 2018, and moved forward with a rehearsed reading at the 2019 Hinterland Festival, which drew a standing ovation from an appreciative audience, Mary Manning herself amongst them.
