George Ogilvie, today one of Australia’s best-loved theatre directors, tells in this remarkable autobiography the story of a boy growing up in provincial Australia who wanted to be an actor so badly he endured hunger, pain and desperation to achieve it. It begins with a penniless teenager joining the last melodrama company in England and ends with a standing ovation at the Sydney Opera House.
