Have you ever wanted to know what it’s really like to be an actor? Michael Simkins has been there, done that, and got the T-shirt. For over forty years, he’s been a regular face on the West End stage and on your TV screens, as well as handing out leaflets at supermarkets dressed as The Pink Panther and filming safety training videos on the correct use of fire extinguishers in the workplace.

In 2001 he wrote the best-selling luvvie memoir “What’s My Motivation”, and now he brings together all his best stories of four decades spent in a celebration of anecdotes and memories. During his career he’s worked with Meryl Streep and Stephen Fry, spent two years encased in gold spandex in Mamma Mia, and is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4 shows such as Quote Unquote and the Today programme.

TV work includes playing Steve Lowe in Eastenders, Lionel Mead in Doctors and Hugh Reid in Foyles War. In between he’s appeared in a million and one plays, musicals and TV dramas.

Join the ERT team for a complimentary glass of wine and an evening with Michael Simkins as he shares his hilarious anecdotes about life as an actor in the first of a series of ERT benefit evenings.
