Summary

Laurie Taylor interviews acclaimed acting teacher Anna Scher, whose former pupils include Kathy Burke, Pauline Quirke, Patsy Palmer, Linda Robson and Gary Kemp. She founded the Anna Scher Theatre, a drama school in Islington, north London, in 1968 and taught there until 2000, when, after a period of illness, she was informed her services were no longer required. A vociferous campaign to reinstate her, supported by friends and former pupils, proved fruitless, but she now teaches classes at a nearby church - and reveals that she has not given up hope of returning to her former workplace.
