About The Book

This work examines the Welsh acting tradition. Although lacking a metropolitan centre, a culture developed in which both chapels and schools encouraged recitations and performances. Each chapter evokes an actor and assesses their work, career and contribution made to film and theatre in general.


'... elegantly written and infectious in its engagement with the theatre and cinema ... Peter Stead, a professional historian, has done his research in preparation for writing this superb book and has come up with some fascinating facts. His judgements are balanced, illuminating and entertaining.' www
