Tall Tales - In Conversation with Greg McGee

Script to Screen Presents:

Tall Tales (Some True)
In Conversation with Greg McGee

Script to Screen welcomes a leading figure in NZ television, film and theatre - Greg McGee - to its October Writer’s Room.

Since writing the play Foreskin’s Lament, McGee has made a major contribution to the development of our television drama - including Erebus, Fallout, Marlin Bay, Greenstone, Roche, Cover Story, Doves of War, Skin and Bone, Orange Roughies, and Street Legal. He’s also co-scripted three features and won awards for Best Play, Best Screenplay, and Best Television Drama.

McGee has just written his memoirs - which are as frank and entertaining as we’d hoped - so it’s an ideal time to get him to talk about his journey as a writer and to share what he’s learned along the way. Roger Horrocks will MC the event.

Tuesday 28th October
7pm drinks, 7.30pm start
The Classic
321 Queen St, Auckland
$5 donation at the door

* Following this event Greg McGee will sign copies of his recently published memoirs:

“Tall Tales (Some True): Memoirs of an Unlikely Writer”
