We are delighted to welcome Eleanor Bron, one of theatreland’s most distinguished actresses, to read her own work Stuff, a meditation by a woman of advanced years who finds herself contemplating the accumulations of a lifetime and asking some of life’s hardest questions: How did she do? Did she do well? Will she proceed to Heaven or to Hell?
Eleanor Bron’s career started in satirical cabaret in the 1960’s and continued in Theatre, TV and Radio. Among her films are Help, Bedazzled, Two for the Road, Women In Love, The House of Mirth, The Heart of Me and A Little Princess. Recent audiobooks include Craig Brown’s Ma’am Darling, and Lud-in-the-Mist by Hope Mirrlees. She has written several books of memoir, a novel, a song-cycle, verses for Carnival of the Animals, and is currently working on a series of short plays in verse, of which Stuff is the most recent. A new departure, or a final exit..?
All proceeds from this event will go to The Reading Agency
