Nesrin Alrefaai and Matthew Spangler

Staging the Beekeeper

Venue: Courthouse

During her 2019 visit to Hinterland Christy Lefteri joined our ‘Writer in Motion’ Matt Spangler as he outlined how he would approach adapting her novel The Beekeeper of Aleppo for the stage. In case you hadn’t noticed Matt then went on and did just that, in collaboration with Nesrin Alrefaai. The play is currently touring theatres in Britain and Ireland. Matt and Nesrin will be talking about the collaboration that began in Kells. They will be in conversation with playwright and scriptwriter Ross Dungan.
