Oliver Emanuel on L'Assommoir
In our workshop today, playwright Oliver Emanuel explores L’Assommoir by Émile Zola, the 7th novel in the 20 volume series Les Rougon-Macquart. Regarded as one of Zola's most influential masterpieces, it studies alcoholism and poverty in working-class districts in Paris. Expect an open discussion from the start: you can either read the book ahead of the event or be inspired to pick it up afterwards.
