About this item

Harvey, an actor and stage manager in the UK, and Kelleher, a freelance editor and researcher in the UK, provides Harvey's diary as stage manager of the avant-garde production of Fernando Arrabal's The Architect and the Emperor of Assyria starring Anthony Hopkins and Jim Dale and directed by controversial and radical director Victor Garcia. The diary records events, requests, decisions, and changes in the production and was kept at the request of Laurence Olivier (joint director of the Old Vic theatre), who was worried about the rehearsals and wanted a record if things went wrong. Also provided are press clippings, recollections from Hopkins, Dale, Harvey, translator Jean-Norman Benedetti, general stage manager Douglas Cornelissen, music and sound manager Marc Wilkinson, assistant stage manager Amanda Ducket, and sound technician Antony Horde, as well as articles on the rehearsals and the play's lighting design.
