Mystery in the Theatre: Westport, NBS Theatre 31 May 2024

By April 9, 2024No Comments
The Ngaio Marsh Awards, in association with Buller District Libraries and the NBS Theatre, invites booklovers to a thrilling evening of criminally good conversation with three acclaimed Kiwi storytellers.
Crime writing has come a long way since Agatha Christie and our own Ngaio Marsh were intriguing readers with whodunnit murder mysteries in the Golden Age. Nowadays, tales run the gamut from puzzling entertainments to deep-dives into people, place, and human psychology. Not just the investigation of crimes and violence but stories exploring its rippling impact on characters and society.
Ngaios-winning Westport author Becky Manawatu is joined by award-winning Northland memoirist and author Caroline Barron and leading TV screenwriter-producer and novelist Roger Simpson to discuss how they craft compelling storylines, and bring characters and settings to life on the page while exploring real-life issues. Westport librarian Nicky Meadowcraft will chair proceedings.
