WITH SIMON CALLOW

Simon Callow stands back and wonders: what is acting?

In 1982, Simon Callow wrote his first book: it was called Being An Actor, and it was his reckless attempt, after not even ten years of acting, to describe the physical. psychological and emotional experience of  creating and playing characters. Now, after nearly 50 years of immersion in it, he is still obsessed with trying to plumb its mysteries, and will try, before your very eyes, to catch at its essence. His professional life started in Edinburgh, in 1973, so of course it is in Edinburgh that he presents Being an Actor: Fifty Years On for the very first time.
