Dame Sheila Hancock: Old Rage

Venue Storyhouse
Admission £37/£27
Start Time 19:30
End Time 22:00

Spend an evening with one of Britain’s best loved actors of the stage and screen, as she opens up about her ninth decade. 

Dame Sheila Hancock looked like she was breezing through old age. She had weathered and even thrived in widowhood, taking on acting roles that would have been demanding for a woman half her age. She has energy, friends, a devoted family, a lovely home.

She can still remember her lines.  So why, at 88, having sailed past supposedly disturbing milestones – 50, 70, even 80 – without a qualm, does she suddenly feel so furious? 

Celebrating the publication of her latest book Old Rage, Hancock will explore how devastating diagnoses, adjustments, Brexit and bereavement, now seem to knock her from every quarter. And that was before lockdown.
