Sir Richard Eyre was Director of the Royal National Theatre for a decade and in this captivating autobiography he gives his views on acting and politics, alongside striking portraits of friends and colleagues such as Ian Charleson, Laurence Olivier, Ian McKellen, Peter Brook and Judi Dench. It is also an unforgettable recreation of a Dorset childhood, and a portrait of his extraordinary family. One grandfather was on Scott's first Antarctic expedition, the other liked to assault motorists with his horsewhip and Eyre's parents like to implement a tyranny of fun, his father's motto being 'Enough is too little, too much is enough.' "Utopia and Other Places" is also a hilarious, if scathing, account of his own brief acting career. Witty and poignant, this is a remarkable work of honesty from one of our most celebrated creative talents.
