A Night in with Stephen Fry
Look Who's Talking Online - Tuesday 1 December 7.00pm - Thursday 3 December 9.00pm - $20
Join Stephen Fry – multi-award winning comedian, actor, presenter, writer, and masterful storyteller – for a captivating evening in, as he at last tells the passionate and powerful story of Troy. Curl up on your sofa as Stephen brings to life the legendary kidnapping of the beautiful Helen, for whom the Greeks launched a thousand ships and lay siege for ten bloody years; king of the gods Zeus, who triggered war when he asked Trojan prince Paris to judge the fairest goddess of all; and the terrible, brutal war with casualties on all sides.
Stephen Fry celebrates the launch of his new book Troy, following his bestsellers Mythos and Heroes, by sharing the heroism and hatred, revenge and regret, and desire and despair – and showing how these human passions still speak to us today.
Don’t miss this one-off opportunity to join one of Britain’s best-loved authors as he invites us to join him at the fireside to hear the greatest story ever told.
