The Kite Runner

Matt Spangler’s stage adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner has been going from strength to strength.

Matt will be talking about his relationship with the author, and with the superbly drawn characters from the bestselling book.

Adapting Striking Back

Event  25 
Venue: Presbyterian Church – Creative Ireland Stage

In an experiment that could go anywhere Matt Spangler (The Kite Runner), our ‘in-house’ dramatist, will be joined by Mary Manning and Sinead O’Brien as he attempts to explain how he would go about adapting Striking Back: The Untold Story of an Anti-Apartheid Striker, Mary and Sinead’s account of the lengthy Dunne’s Stores strike of the 1980s, which began as an anti-apartheid protest. Matt has tackled projects as diverse as Kevin Barry’s Beatlebone and Zlata Filipovic’s Zlata’s Diary in previous festivals but nothing quite like this.
