Antony Sher is one of Britain's most brilliant actors and authors. Since moving to England in 1968 from his native Cape Town, he has excelled in a huge range of roles in his 30-year career, and was knighted in 2000. His latest work is a masterly monologue Primo, Sher's adaptation of If This is a Man (1947) by the great Holocaust chronicler Primo Levi.

Antony Sher lived for many years as an outsider 'gay, white, Jewish South African' as he came to terms with both the racial politics of his youth and his own sexuality. In conversation with Nick Hern, he spoke about his life and work.
