I Just Snapped

  • Capital Theatre 50 View Street Bendigo, VIC, 3550 Australia (map)

Beatrice Alba, Jess Hill, Bri Lee

You hear it again and again when violent crimes are reported and perpetrators go to court: "I just snapped". Beatrice Alba talks to two writers who have reported on such crimes to find out their reactions to this defence, what they discovered about both society's understanding of why violence happens and also the way the law deals with it. And for a writer, is it necessary or possible to understand both the victim and the perpetrator's point of view?

Please note: Maryrose Cuskelly will no longer appear at the 2019 Bendigo Writers Festival.
