A Life in Cricket and in the Mind
Former England cricket captain Mike Brearley reflects on his extraordinary life and career drawing in lessons and insights he has gained from his experience as a trained psychoanalyst.
Mike will look back on a lifetime of the sport, from childhood games to his captaincy in the Ashes, leading England to one of their most famous victories and candidly examine the various shifts, conflicts and triumphs of his extraordinary life and career, both on and off the field.
‘Brearley is comfortable with abstract ideas, but he wears his learning lightly. His voice is tolerant, and his mind is always open.’ – Times
Mike will be in conversation with journalist and Festival Patron Stefan Stern.
