TV Preview: To Walk Invisible + Q&A
Thursday, 8 December 2016 - 6:45pm
Princess Anne Theatre, BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly
A preview of the BBC’s new one-off drama telling the story of the Brontë sisters, followed by a Q&A with writer Sally Wainwright and cast.
Produced by BBC Wales, and written and directed by multi-BAFTA winner Sally Wainwright (Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax), To Walk Invisible follows the remarkable Brontë sisters, played by Chloe Pirrie, Charlie Murphy and Finn Atkins, who came from obscurity to create some of the best-known novels in the English language.
The drama revolves around the three sisters’ increasingly difficult relationship with their brother Branwell (Nagaitis), who in the last three years of his life sank into alcoholism and drug addiction, as well as their relationship with their father, played by Jonathan Pryce (Wolf Hall, Game Of Thrones).
Q&A hosted by Fiona Wilson.
With thanks to the BBC.
