A memoir from the much-loved actress and RSC-veteran, Judi Dench. This book is much more than a career record. Her marriage, daughter, and her impish sense of humour contribute vividly to her account of more than half a century as Britain's best-loved actress.
From the moment Judi Dench appeared as a teenager in the York Mystery Plays it was clear that acting would be her career. Trained at London's Central School of Speech and Drama it was her performance in her twenties as Juliet in Franco Zeffirelli's memorable Old Vic production that turned her into a star. In the theatre since she has played every classic role from Titania (three times, most recently in 2010) to Cleopatra.
