I saw this play in a recent Roundabout Theater revival in New York and was interested in how it happened. This is a memoir of the original London production, written by the playwright. It's funny, mournful, filled with good portraits of the actors and the rehearsal process--as well as the frustrations involved as the written play comes alive on stage. It's especially engaging when things don't work and we watch the artists find their way into the play as Simon Gray, the playwright, slips into the backround. A good read for anyone interested in theater.
