Summary:
"Leading actor, Peter Bowles, invites us backstage in the West End and on tour to witness the job of acting as it really is. 'Behind the Curtain' is based on his own career as a leading stage and TV actor for over 55 years. With wit and style he recounts his personal views on rehearsals, touring, drama school, working with directors and other actors, and audiences. He has trod some of the most famous boards in the business, from Shakespeare on Broadway in 1956, to Sheridan's 'The Rivals' at London's Haymarket in 2011. Peter also became nationally famous for his part as businessman Richard DeVere in the TV series 'To the Manor Born'. This highly entertaining book will appeal to anyone who wants to know more about 'the profession'"--Publisher's description, p. [4] of cover.
