First Nights, Second Thoughts: A Critical Survey of British Theatre 1986-1991 (Hardback)Charles Osborne (author)
Hardback Published: 10/06/2001
- Not available
In 1986 Charles Osborne, ex-actor and translator of plays from French and German (and once described in Vogue as 'a suave 20th century version of the universal man') published a vitriolic attack on British drama critics. As a result, he was offered the posiiton as Chief Theatre Critic for the Daily Telegraph. He agreed to undertake the job for a period of no more than five years. His perceptive, trenchant and wittily expressed reviews established him as a highly respected recorder of the London theatrical scene. As a record and celebration of five on the front-line, FIRST NIGHT, SECOND THOUGHTS is the perfect souvenir programme for five of the most exciting thespian years in the thespian capital of the world.
