dc.description.abstractAutobiography inevitably involves some sense of reflection on, as well as selection from, the past; not merely a recital of factually affectless information. Australian theatrical producer, actor and company director John Bell offers a breezily easy read, rather than a notably contemplative approach to his life. His Prologue outlines his reasons for writing as being 'part personal, part professional', wondering 'how do you separate the strands?' The professional comes off best, and he articulates his notion that 'our actors should know something of their own theatre history and maybe the theatre-going public should too'. He doesn't altogether avoid the trap of listing titles of productions, with 'sterling performances', but his account of shifting theatrical tastes in the last few decades of the twentieth century is worth having.en
