Book Reading by Colin McPhillamy at the Court Theatre on June 22nd
Colin McPhillamy plays Peter Quince in The Court Theatre's newest production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. By special arrangement he will read from his new book An Actor Walks into China on Sunday 22nd June in The Court foyer at 4.00 p.m.
Born in London, McPhillamy trained as an actor at the Royal Central School. He was with the National Theatre for five seasons and has extensive Broadway, West End, regional acting credits. He has also been a regular contributor to BBC Radio.
In a career that has taken him from northern Scotland to southern Australia, nothing prepared him for China.
An Actor Walks into China tells of adventures directing and producing Western theatre in Beijing and then producing Chinese theatre in London.
McPhillamy says, "I liked everyone I met in China. It was only when we started doing business that the shouting started."
