The Stage Struck Me is a funny, informative and sometimes sad account of the life of a jobbing actor and writer in the s and s, full of anecdotes about the famous, the infamous, the charming and the downright loopy people he met along the way.
After joining the South African Army and serving as a gunner in the coastal artillery, Neville Phillips was transferred to the entertainment unit where he spent four years doing shows for the Allied troops in North Africa and Italy. In he was demobbed to London and it was here that Neville Phillips met and got to know some truly remarkable people, as well as writing West End revues, pantomime, cabaret, and a musical starring Pat Kirkwood.
Now aged 83 and still waiting for the telephone to ring, Neville Phillips has written this fascinating and sometimes poignant account of the times, places and people that played such an important part in his life.
Very enjoyable and well-written story of this 'not very well known' actor who knew so many British actors during his career. My heart is racing, my palms are sweating, but it is good. Tonight, I can be anybody I want to be. A family friend said I should try out for StageStruck.
I talked my cousin into going to auditions with me. Next thing I know, we were both a part of the cast.
