Rebecca Hodgson, Head of Drama and Peter Hunt, Head of Casting at Lime Pictures, producers of Hollyoaks, Channel 4 and Free Rein, Netflix, provide a contemporary viewpoint and grounded, practical advice for those determined to try to make it in this rapidly changing industry.

STAGE DIRECTION features exclusive radio interviews recorded with Sir Anthony and Roy in 1984 and explores how the acting profession has changed, where the new opportunities for emerging actors are now coming from and what are some of the many challenges that they will have to contend with when trying to get established.

Sir Anthony and Roy were appearing in The Clandestine Marriage at the Albery Theatre, London, the inaugural production of Sir Anthony’s newly formed Compass Theatre Company.

During the interviews, they reflected on their experiences getting established in the industry and offered practical advice to those thinking of following them into the profession.
