4.5 out of 5 stars

Max Stafford-Clark's company had hugely more rehearsal time and research opportunities than most actors have. Once or twice he raises the question of how much that fed into the performances, without answering that question. Perhaps it's like advertising; you know that half of it (or more) is wasted, but never know which half.

One of the best books you'll read on directing. Love the approach and the depth of understanding from both the director and the actors.
A real lesson in the craft of directing and acting.

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.
