Apprenticeship is Peter Gill's potent recollection of the changing theatrical landscape of the 1960s. Part history, part memoir, part polemic, it puts into context his recently discovered diary of 1962 in which he vividly recalls his experiences as a young actor in Brecht's The Caucasian Chalk Circle as part of their first London season. This intensely personal account, by turns witty and evocative, includes a penetrating analysis of the figures and themes of twentieth century drama and marks the beginning of Gill's development into one of the most important and influential playwrights and directors in the British Theatre.
