At Freddie's by Penelope Fitzgerald (Paperback, 1989)




From the Booker Prize-winner of `Offshore’ comes this entertaining tale of a chaotic stage school and its singular headmistress. With a new introduction by Simon Callow.It is the 1960s, in London’s West End, and Freddie is the formidable proprietress of the Temple Stage School. Of unknown age and provenance, Freddie is a skirt-swathed enigma – a woman who by sheer force of character and single-minded thrust has turned herself and her school into a national institution., Anyone who is anyone must know Freddie.At Freddie’s is a wickedly droll comedy of the theatre and its terminally eccentric devotees.
