About the Book

As an actress, the atmosphere along with all the undercurrents, vendettas, insecurities and gossip, added to the achingly realistic
terrors of first rehearsals , the lead- up to opening night and beyond, the stage-fright, the extra-curricular love affairs and all the protocol that is endemic to a prestigious theatrical touring company in post-depression USA, ring nostalgically true. The author has certainly been through the theatrical mill and, with his keen observation of that hot-house atmosphere, even if, in North West Nowhere, freezing snow is falling outside, leaves nothing to the imagination and sketches each character and scene with a masterful hand. I have been trying to track down this excellent book for at least 65 years - it still stands alone as a theatrical fictionalised documentary. Bravo, Open Library !!!
