The Ivy House Diary

Author: Martin Banks


At drama school in London during the swinging sixties Rose-Mary and Martin come together. They are part of the cultural revolution. Feminism is re-emerging and experimentation with sex, drugs and rock and roll is rampant. Their training at Ivy House is rigorous and at times wretched but not without humor. They are educated by a cast of eccentric, esteemed characters who are still revered by British actors. Their stories are for anyone with an interest in theatre. You will cry, you will laugh aloud at their astonishing intimate behind-the-scenes tell all of their intense often bizarre British drama school training. You will marvel at their friendship that spans four decades and two continents.
