Kim Cattrall speaks on BBC’s Woman’s Hour in a narrative, based on diaries she wrote at the time that convey her state of mind when suffering sleep deprivation.

Her personal battle with sleeplessness would eventually lead to her being forced to pull out of a London stage production. The process of coming to terms with insomnia involved re-examining her own life, the impact of her father’s death and her own mortality. It ultimately proved life-changing.
