At Freddie's, Paperback / softback Book

Description

From the Booker Prize-winner of `Offshore' comes this entertaining tale of a chaotic stage school and its singular headmistress.

With a new introduction by Simon Callow. It is the 1960s, in London's West End, and Freddie is the formidable proprietress of the Temple Stage School.

Of unknown age and provenance, Freddie is a skirt-swathed enigma - a woman who by sheer force of character and single-minded thrust has turned herself and her school into a national institution.

Anyone who is anyone must know Freddie. At Freddie's is a wickedly droll comedy of the theatre and its terminally eccentric devotees.
