First Houses On Becoming an Actor
Barkworth, Peter
Secker & Warburg London 1983 
 Hardcover review-contents British actor Barkworth recalls his early years in the theater--starting as a teenage reciter of dialects and funny poems at fundraising concerts during WW II. Seeing Gielgud's Hamlet in 1944, however, made him want to be a ""serious and great actor"": he won a scholarship to RADA (supplemented by family sacrifice); provincial repertory followed--with one compelling little anecdote about breaking a contract in order to take a more attractive job. (The theater manager in Folkestone was furious; Barkworth carried the guilt for some time after.) And, after an agent saw him in Sheffield, Barkworth was off to London circa 1952--but with disappointing results. So only after deciding to give up and turn to teaching did Barkworth "fall in love again with the whole business of being an actor"--leading to his first big West End success, Roar Like a Dove. 132 well bound clean pp, bw pix interspersed  Very Good/Good

Whose Life Is It Anyway?
Clark, Brian
Heimeman UK 1993 
 Laminated Pictorial Boards gr review - WLIA is a classic play, all about the conflict between professionalism and the right to decide for one's self. Ken Harrison is paralyzed for life, with no hope of physical recovery. In an attempt to keep what's left of his dignity, and protect his loved ones from a fate of misery, imprisoned by sympathy for him, he decides to end his life. Everyone around him in the hospital tries their best to stop him, but for the intelligent person he is, they can't stand a chance in an argument. All in all, as heart-wrenching and morally confusing this play could be to a reader or a viewer, it is deeply touching, well-written and definitely worthy of being a classic taught worldwide. Clean & well bound little volume.  Excellent/None issued
