A new memoir from acclaimed playwright and director Peter Sheridan, Break A Leg tells the story of his life in the theatre, and meanwhile touches on so much more. Break a Leg is not just about Sheridan s life, but also about the wider culture and politics of Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s. The theatre, seen through Sheridan s eyes, can do much more than entertain; it can itself be a vehicle of social change. Honestly confronting his emerging problems with panic attacks and alcohol, and blending social history with memoir, Sheridan s story is written in gutsy, fresh prose that captures your attention from the first page.
