Jack Rosenthal & Maureen Lipman exhibition


Jack Rosenthal emerged from the newly created Granada television studios in Manchester to become an award winning playwright and television screen writer, penning many Coronation Street episodes.

Maureen Lipman continues to have an enduring, successful and wide-ranging career which includes theatre, television, film, radio and print.

Jack and Maureen met at Granada, married and shared their lives together for over thirty years.

The exhibition uses items from the Jack Rosenthal Drama Scripts Collection and the Maureen Lipman Papers, both held by the University of Sheffield Library’s Special Collections Department, to illustrate the development and diversity of their careers and the way in which shared family values came together to produce a creative partnership.

This fab exhibition is now on at the Western Bank Library at Sheffield University until August 19th. All details here.

She's a much better writer than she is given credit for.

Maureen Lipman's short time as Lily the manageress of the Rovers will always be remembered unlike the present plastic landlady best friend of the producer.
