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.
Never less than courageous and often desperately moving- Daily Telegraph
Funny, feisty, honest (if often outraged), Hancock makes for brilliant company as she talks about her life as a daughter, a sister, a mother, a wife, a widow, an actor, a friend and looks at a world so different from the wartime world of her childhood. And yet – despite age, despite rage – she finds there are always reasons for joy.
Don’t miss the opportunity to join the legendary actor for a gloriously irreverent evening.
All Premium Ticket Holders will receive Dame Sheila Hancock's book "Old Rage"
