Abstract:

"From the late 1940s, until shortly before his death in 2007, John Devitt was one of Dublin's most avid and discerning theatre-goers. A born raconteur, John could talk about productions from 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s as if he had just stepped out of the theatre, fresh from the experience that meant so much to him. This book is more than a record of the oral history of Dublin theatre-going that his memories contained - it is a glimpse into a life that was witty, argumentative, and vigorous, but never dull."--BOOK JACKET.
