Summary

Harold Child (1869-1945) was a literary critic and writer who was prominent in the development of dramatic criticism, notably in his work on the history of Shakespearean production. Originally published in 1939, this book presents a humorous and self-deprecating account of Child's early experiences as an actor in various theatrical companies, prior to his decision to leave the stage and concentrate on writing. Illustrative figures are also included. This is a fascinating and highly readable book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in Child's writings and British theatre in general.
