This is the second volume of essays by actors with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Fourteen actors describe the Shakespearean roles they played in productions between 1982 and 1987. A brief biographical note is provided for each of the contributors and an introduction places the essays in the context of the Stratford and London stages, and of the music and design for the particular productions.

Industry Reviews

'In this helpful and illuminating collection of fourteen essays by RSC actors describing the roles they played with the company between 1982 and 1987, light is shed on the unique hybrid that is theatre, being a fusion of the arts and the practical and intellectual virtues.' Gerald Werson, The Stage and Television Today '... there is not one among these essays which does not contain at least something of interest: a fresh insight into the meaning of a line, or a plausible explanation of hitherto inexplicable conduct on the part of a character'. Charles Osborne, The Daily Telegraph
