Tate Modern Talk

Book Launch: The Treatment

Join award-winning playwright Matt Morrison as he meets author Michael Nath at the launch of his new novel The Treatment

Enjoy an evening of live readings and discussion about Michael Nath’s new novel The Treatment.

At a London bus stop, a black teenager is murdered by a racist gang. 20 years later the murder is not forgotten. The Treatment is steeped in London’s criminal and corrupt past. Like a seventeenth-century revenge tragedy, its characters reel from the streets, bars and brothels and are propelled by wild justice.

The talk will be followed by a book signing.

This event is in collaboration with Riverrun.
