Jenny Quayle’s personal insights into her father and working with Roy Kinnear

Jenny Quayle’s personal insights into her father’s craft and working with legendary comic, Roy Kinnear. We filmed her contribution in the same location as the interviews with Anthony and Roy in 1984.


Jenny recorded her interview as a contribution for STAGE DIRECTION, our documentary based around two radio interviews recorded with Anthony Quayle and Roy Kinnear at the Albery Theatre, London in 1984. During the interviews, Anthony and Roy recollect their struggle to get established and pass on suggestions for those thinking of following them into one of the world’s most precarious professions. Over thirty years later, we revisit the theatre and ask what relevance their advice still has for actors today.
