At 89, dealing with shocking diagnoses, Brexit, bereavement and lockdown, Sheila Hancock found herself suddenly, surprisingly furious. Having thrived into old age, Sheila discovers a period of Old Rage and a chance to reflect on her life as a daughter, a sister, a mother, an actor, a friend, reminding herself there is still joy to be had. One of Britain’s most popular and highly regarded actors, Sheila will discuss her extraordinary career, her time spent in the North West, her new memoir Old Rage, and her commitment to activism and championing working class creatives. 

Her career has spanned seven decades across film, television, theatre and radio. She is the author of two bestselling memoirs, The Two of Us, about her marriage to fellow actor John Thaw, which won the British Book Award for Author of the Year, and Just Me, as well as the bestselling novel Miss Carter’s War. Hosted by broadcaster and Observer critic Alex Clark. Sponsored by The Midland Manchester.
