Maritime Hotel

Mon 7 July



Join Jonathan Miller for a very special evening to mark the publication of his collected writings On Further Reflection, on the occasion of his 80th birthday.

‘A  fully accredited physician  and neuropsychologist,  a prolific author, director, broadcaster and lecturer and knight of the realm... Jonathan Miller knows more than a little about everything. He combines qualities that shouldn’t be contained in one person; he is a unique performer and thinker’ – The New York Times

Jonathan Miller first came to public prominence in the early 1960s with his role in the legendary comedy revue Beyond the Fringe with Peter Cook, Dudley Moore and Alan Bennett. He is one of the world’s leading opera directors. His best-known production is probably his 1982 Mafia-styled Rigoletto. In his early days he was an associate director at the Royal National Theatre and later ran the Old Vic Theatre. He has directed plays for the BBC, curated art exhibitions and produced his own artworks in painting, sculpture and photography. Underlying all his cultural work has been an interest in human behaviour, how the brain works and the philosophy of the mind.
