Edited and introduced by Ken Pickering with Anthea Preston.
This new book celebrates the magic of those early memories of theatre which can shape the future course of life. It draws widely on both well-known and relatively unknown authors; on fact and fiction; on those who are living and those who have passed on; on those who became famous and on those for whom the theatre was simply an indelible early experience that enriched their lives. Playwrights, actors, scientists, educators, writers, members of the armed forces and fictional characters are among those whose first or early experiences of theatre are collected here. They are introduced and discussed by two theatre practitioners who have a passion for the influence of the arts in the lives of young people and who are concerned for the importance of the imagination in child development. The recollections and extracts presented are touching, amusing, memorable and poignant and they range from those of the creator of Just William, the grand-daughter of Charles Darwin and the novelist Graham Greene to those of a humble member of a village dramatic society. With a Foreword by an eminent authority on the nature of childhood, these reflections and memories will inspire and entertain but also provide rich food for thought in our age of 'reality'.
