About Strolling Player
From entranced boy at his father’s theatre to actor bringing Shakespeare to the White House, through death and divorce, Oscar Wilde and Harvey Fierstein, falling off the stage and falling in love, Richard Sheridan Willis recounts the passions and absurdities of one actor’s life.
Strolling Player is a kaleidoscope of vivid personal memories from a long vibrant career and hectic personal life, with speeches from Shakespeare, Webster, Shaw, Wilde and more commenting on the action. Cast list includes film stars, knights of the United Kingdom, an American president and a number of ex-wives. Strolling Player provides a unique personal journey through the magic of story-telling, drama and theatre.
