Film director to attend screening at The Roses Theatre

Tewkesbury's Roses Theatre has announced that the director of acclaimed drama, Edie, will attend a screening of the film this June.

Film fans have the chance to meet director Simon Hunter in Tewkesbury on Monday 18 June 2018, when he attends a screening of his inspiring drama, Edie.

Sure to delight film buffs, the event will see Simon Hunter introduce Edie, and take part in a Q&A session after the showing; Simon is set to talk about the production of the film, and working with veteran actress Sheila Hancock.

Having premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival, Edie is the story of an 84-year-old widow who is ready to take on one last challenge; escaping her family and controlling husband, she plans to climb a mountain in the Scottish Highlands.

Embracing the lead role, Sheila Hancock climbed the mountain herself while filming, as well as cycling, rowing, and camping out with the film crew, during what was an inspiring and committed performance.

Promising to be a moving film and engaging session with the director, The Roses Theatre’s special event takes place at 7.30pm on Monday 18 June 2018.
