Product Description


Margery Mason was born in Hackney in 1913. She's been acting for seventy six years and is still happily at it. At fourteen she joined her mother's company, playing Working Men's Clubs in London's East End. There followed a lifetime of rep, West End, films, radio, ENSA in the Middle East during the War, Panto, resident playwright / director in universities in America and Sweden, a rather bizarre and short-lived marriage, The Actors' Company, the RSC, everything but stand-up, before she settled into television, notably for nine years in 'Peak Practice' as the redoubtable Alice North. She's had six plays given production in rep, fringe and radio, but this is her first book. You can see her as a trolley lady in 'Harry Potter'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny, very quirky 17 Mar 2006
By Robert Gardner - Published on Amazon.com
Margery Mason's Peaks and Troughs is a splendidly funny account of an unseen side of English theatre. From her family's involvement in early 20th-century working men's clubs to her experiences with some of the greats and not-so-greats of the British theatrical aristocracy, Mason tells an always arresting, witty account of a life in the theatre that is fiercely unique. Read this book if you are a theatre buff!
