For one night only, Kim Cattrall will talk about her extraordinary life and career for a limited audience at the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral Crypt.

“People will boast “I saw Kim Cattrall’s Cleopatra”
The Times on Antony and Cleopatra

Kim was greeted with great acclaim and huge affection when she returned to the city of her birth in 2010 to play Cleopatra at the Playhouse. Alongside her unforgettable, Golden Globe-winning creation of Samantha Jones in the HBO TV series Sex and the City, she has crafted a remarkable career in film, television and on stage. Now producing as well as a starring in the award-winning HBO Canada series Sensitive Skin, she is an inspiring role model for women in the industry and remains a proud daughter of Liverpool.

She will be in conversation with Merseyside-born Prof. Phil Scraton, whose work focuses on abuses of state power, social justice and human rights. He headed the Hillsborough Independent Panel’s research team, was primary author of its report and his book Hillsborough: The Truth is widely acknowledged as the definitive account of the disaster and aftermath. Awarded the Freedom of the City of Liverpool, Phil is Professor Emeritus in the School of Law at Queen’s University, Belfast.

Audience members will have an opportunity to put their own questions to Kim in what promises to be an intimate and fascinating evening.

This is a charity fundraising event, with all proceeds going to support Young Everyman Playhouse. By buying a ticket, you will help sustain the ambitious and award-winning YEP programme and provide opportunities for young actors, technicians, producers, marketers, directors and writers, just as it did for playwright Daniel Matthew: “When I was a young lad from the estate, the thought of playwriting seemed ridiculous. YEP has transformed my life; it’s helped me achieve the impossible.”

Drinks reception from 7pm // In Conversation begins at 7.30pm

Tickets are £20 for unreserved seating, including a drink on arrival. Or why not make an evening of it, with 6pm pre-show cocktails and canapes at the Everyman and reserved seating at the event, for the all-inclusive price of £40.
