Immerse yourself in the world of theatre, through letters to colleagues living and dead, some famous, some forgotten, and some yet undiscovered.
Max Stafford-Clark, former artistic director of the Royal Court Theatre and founder of the award-winning company Out Of Joint, touches on the highs and lows of a fascinating fifty-four-year career in a series of letters, both professional and personal.
Informative, witty and touching, the book is part-opinion, part-memoir and part-autobiography, rich with anecdote and instruction for theatre lovers and students alike. Stafford-Clark ruminates on the troubled lives of great actors, the problems of re-inventing classics, his personal heroes, and his own fall from grace.
Max Stafford-Clark has been at the cutting edge of British theatre for more than thirty years. After establishing Joint Stock in 1974, he ran the Royal Court Theatre from 1979 to 1993, after which he set up the successful touring company Out of Joint. His work as director has encompassed classics and new work from both leading and new writers. He has also written three books using his extensive knowledge of theatre, including Taking Stock: The Theatre of Max Stafford-Clark (Nick Hern Books, 2017).
