David Hare Live – Adelaide Writers’ Week
Sir David Hare is, in the words of The Washington Post, “the premier political dramatist writing in English”. He is a writer of conviction; his focus is on the ills of the world and he has long challenged audiences yearning for solace to think again about the world we live in. We are thrilled to have persuaded him to come to Adelaide Writers’ Week to read his powerful autobiographical monologue, Beat the Devil, which was originally performed in London by Ralph Fiennes in the first months of the pandemic.
Sir David will then be joined on stage by Australia’s Ironist-in-Chief Don Watson, whose latest book is The Passion of Private White and who has written the best-selling titles Recollections of a Bleeding Heart, Death Sentence and The Bush, for a conversation about the pleasures of writing about truth, lies and public lives.
