rare glimpse of the funny, moving, and unglamorous world of a life in
the theatre. A Life in The Theatre focuses on the relationship between
two actors, the play’s only characters. One, Robert, is a stage veteran
(Schofield) while John (Fletcher) is a young, promising actor. As the
play goes on they are involved in a variety of productions, and
gradually their relationship begins to change in a series of short,
spare and increasingly raw exchanges.
