This is a series of interviews conducted by Richard Eyre with theatre professionals to coincide with a BBC TV series. Sounds unpromising? Think again! If you have any love for the theatre itself, its processes and methods, the ideas and ideologies behind twentieth century theatre in all its aspects, then you will find something to love, something new, something fascinating here. It's not for those seeking witty anecdotes; it's not for those who have a merely passing interest in theatre;it is certainly not for those who like celebrity culture and gossip.
But if you are capable of looking below the surface of a text; if you are interested in the way theatre works as a medium; if you are interested in theatre as a force for social change and commentary on the world we live in- then this is the book for you. It is just a series of interviews- but they are conducted with passion and intelligence, probing and questioning, and exploring the nature of this living art form.
The print is small- the ideas are big. Recommended.Those who will like it, will love it. If you don't know who Brecht, Pinter, Beckett and Miller are, don't bother.
