5.0 out of 5 stars A fab read 25 Nov 2010
A friend recommended this to me. I hadn't really read theatrical autobiography before - it was fascinating! Max S-C has many amusing tales to tell, as one would expect, but the book is also a very interesting insight into how a theatre production can come together through hard work, lateral thinking and imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Letters to George 8 May 2006
By cortezhill - Published on
In autumn 1988 Max Staford-Clark directed George Farquhar's Restoration comedy, The Recruiting Officer, on the stage of the Royal Court Theatre. It was a smash hit both with critics and audiences.

Each night, after rehearsal, Stafford-Clark would return home and write to Farquhar reporting on the day's work. In these Letters to George, the man from 1988 instructs the man from 1706 on the changes in taste, theatrical fashion and social behavior which have overtaken the play.

Max is not above chiding George for the odd patch of 'sloppy writing' or speculating on the conditions of the Restoration theatre which had shaped George's play.
