Defending quality in public performance

Public performance:

and defending quality in a dysfunctional society

Some thoughts by Georgina Kirk April 2012


Driving to a meeting of the Manchester Salon the other week, I heard Joan Collins on the radio talking about how, when she was establishing herself in show business, actors were dedicated to their craft, whereas now it’s all “I wanna be famous!”. Putting aside the mild irony of it coming from a woman better known for her appearance and attitude than her acting ability, this assertion got me thinking.
