Description

Ruth Cracknell: A Biased Memoir goes behind the scenes into the fascinating world of Australia's first lady of theatre, film and television. From performing in radio soap operas in evening wear to dancing a wild tango in the famous Phillip Street revues to subverting the 'old dear' stereotype in Mother and Son, Ruth Cracknell has led an acting life that embraces Australian theatre history since World War Two. Her personal account beautifully evokes the endless summers and long verandahs of childhood, the wild adventure of London in the 50s, the fun and desperation of rehearsals in many theatres - and always the richness of a life hugely enjoyed and lived to the full.show more
