Inside accounts of the making of some of the most influential theatre productions of the last four decades. Max Stafford-Clark has been at the cutting edge of theatre in Britain for more than thirty years. Taking Stock draws on diaries, photos and interviews to recreate the evolution of nine of his most famous and influential productions:
Fanshen by David Hare; Epsom Downs by Howard Brenton; Cloud Nine by Caryl Churhill; Rita, Sue and Bob Too by Andrea Dunbar; Serious Money by Caryl Churchill; Our Country’s Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker; The Steward of Christendom by Sebastian Barry; Some Explicit Polaroids by Mark Ravenhill; Macbeth by William Shakespeare
The result is one of the richest, most intimately informative books on the making of theatre.
“A terrific read. I really didn’t want to finish it; some magician, some force” Carole Woddis, Rogues and Vagabonds
“These rehearsal diaries are welcome… Stafford-Clark tells a good story” Aleks Sierz, Independent
