Based on the diaries of the theatre critic and writer Kenneth Tynan. Written over the last ten years of Tynan's life, these painfully honest and revealing diaries create a portrait of one of the most interesting and complex men of our time. Literary Manager of the National Theatre under Olivier, dominant theatre critic, journalist, impresario of Oh Calcutta!, Kenneth Tynan was a profound, original and witty observer of his world. And never was he more ruthless than when he turned his sights upon himself.
This book contains a foreword by Corin Redgrave and an introduction by Tracy Tynan.
Tynan premiered as part of the RSC New Work Festival at the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in October 2004.
