Loitering with Intent: The Apprentice

Volume 2

3.99 based on 74 ratings & 14 reviews on Goodreads.com

Covering his time as a drama student at RADA, the author writes about his student days in London in the 1950s, a time which coincided with significant moments in British theatre. Among the recollections are seeing Richard Burton in "King John" at the Old Vic, remembers Dame Sybil Thorndyke giving him elocution lessons and describing ballet lessons shared with fellow actor, Albert Finney.

Reading this book, I was given the impression that the author was writing while jumping on a trampoline, soaring, singing, flying, with horizontal and vertical landings, and occasionally standing still and quietly mewling. . . . A vastly entertaining, sometimes exasperating, highly literate comic work
