Sir Jonathan Miller is a man of many parts.
Doctor, an expert in neuropsychology, a satirist, writer, sculptor and director of theatre, opera and film, he rose to fame in the early 1960s when, alongside Peter Cook, Dudley Moore and Alan Bennett, he co-wrote and starred in the groundbreaking satirical stage revue Beyond The Fringe.
Combining some of the best Oxbridge talents of the era, it first played the Edinburgh Fringe before transferring the West End and then Broadway, heralding a brave new era of satirical comedy.
Miller would soon go on to edit the BBC’s flagship arts programme Monitor and became associate director of the National Theatre. His career has found him producing innovative operatic productions for, among others, the English National and Royal Opera companies. As a television presenter Miller also helped popularise science on the small screen though today the dumbed down world of 21st century TV does not appear to be very interested in him. It is their loss.
This unique one-man show finds Miller discussing his life and work beyond Beyond The Fringe.
