about this item

Year of the Fat Knight is legendary stage actor Sir Antony Sher's account—splendidly supplemented by his own paintings and sketches—of researching, rehearsing, and performing one of Shakespeare's most iconic characters for a 2014 Royal Shakespeare Company production. This follow-up to Sher's 1985 classic Year of the King is a terrific read, rich in humor and excitement, that also stands as a celebration of the craft of character acting.

Year of the Fat Knight is Antony Sher?s account richly supplemented by his own paintings and sketches of researching, rehearsing and performing Falstaff, one of Shakespeare?s best-known and most popular characters. It is a rich journey of discovery, deeply personal, enlightening and hugely entertaining, about the life of an actor and this quintessential English role.
