A new edition, with a new author's introduction, of this classic of theatre writing, published to mark the 20th anniversary of Sher's Richard III.

Antony Sher's stunning performance for the RSC as Richard III on crutches won him the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for acting. This book records—in the actor's own words and drawings—the making of this historic theatrical event.

'One of the finest books I have ever read on the process of acting.' Time Out
