    Tales of an Actor
by   Steven Berkoff
Harry is a dedicated artist, often out of work, rejected and desperate to practise his craft. In Graft - Tales of an Actor, Steven Berkoff, world-renowned actor, director, playwright and author, draws his breath in pain to tell Harry’s story, from auditioning at the local Town Hall for a drama school grant, through occasional working highs and low encounters with agents and directors to his final exit at Leicester Square Tube.
