Conversations with Sir David Hare


Critically acclaimed director, playwright and screenwriter Sir David Hare will visit Abergavenny on Tuesday 2 November as the “Conversations in the Chapel” continue.

‘Conversations in the Chapel’ is a monthly event at the Chapel on Market Street in Abergavenny, which sees local filmmaker Alastair Laurence host a series of lectures with prominent guests from different artistic disciplines. The popular event resumed in Abergavenny this fall after Covid lockdowns with interviews with photographer David Hurn and former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams. This month’s guest David Hare is one of our most important post-war writers for stage and screen. David’s plays include Plenty, Pavoda (with Howard Brenton), The Secret Rapture, The Absence of War and The Judas Kiss. His screenplays include Damage, Denial, and more recently Collateral, Roadkill, and Nureyev’s biopic The White Crow. Acclaimed winner, Sir David was nominated for two Oscars for Best Adapted Screenplay for Writing Hours in 2002 and The Reader in 2008, and also received three Golden Globe nominations, three Tony Award nominations and won a Bafta Award. And two Laurence Olivier Awards. In 1998 David was knighted for his services to the arts. The event will start at 7 p.m. at the Chapel on Tuesday 2 November, tickets cost £ 10 and are available at the Art House and Chapel by reservation required.
