Event description
From It’s A Sin, this year’s most talked-about TV show, join creator Russell T Davies and actor Omari Douglas in conversation.

About this event

This event will be live streamed online and available to view on demand at a later time for all ticket holders.

As the writer of much-loved series including Queer As Folk, Years and Years and A Very English Scandal, Davies has fast emerged as one of the most original and distinctive voices in British television. His latest show, It’s A Sin, arrived earlier this year to huge critical acclaim and has been watched by millions. Set in London during the 1980s, it follows five friends whose lives are impacted by the AIDS crisis. At times devastating, it is also a joyful portrait of a group of young people living through a pivotal moment in LGBT+ history.

He will be joined by Omari Douglas, widely praised for his portrayal of Roscoe Babatunde in the series. At just 26, Douglas’ career already includes stage credits such as Emma Rice’s adaptation of Wise Children at the Old Vic, and in June he will return to the West End in a revival of Nick Payne’s Constellations.

Together, Douglas and Davies will talk to Guardian columnist Rebecca Nicholson about the making of one of this year’s most loved and talked about series, about TV as a powerful medium for change, as well as the impassioned political activism and hope that changed British attitudes to AIDS and HIV, sex positivity, and representation in the media.

We are celebrating The Guardian’s 200th birthday with a digital festival featuring today’s leading thinkers, activists, artists and politicians. Join our specially curated programme of online conversations from wherever you are in the world. See the full lineup here and sign up to our newsletter for more announcements.
