About this book
The behind-the-scenes story of Blakemore's time at the National Theatre in the 1970s, published to tie in with the 50th anniversary of the venue. Includes real characters such as Laurence Olivier and Harold Pinter.
In 1971, the author joined the National Theatre as Associate Director under Laurence Olivier. In this book, he recalls the theatrical triumphs and flops, the extravagant dinners in Hall's Barbican flat with Harold Pinter, Jonathan Miller and other associates, the opening of the new building, and his brave and misrepresented decision to speak out.
