On graduating from the New Zealand Drama School in 1979, I was offered an apprenticeship at Downstage, New Zealand's oldest professional theatre, by the inspirational artistic director, Anthony Taylor. For two years I worked as an assistant stage manager, rigged lights, plastered posters over the city, built sets and made props alongside the iconic designer, Raymond Boycc, as well as performing in a stimulating and challenging variety of theatre styles.

John Smythe: Downstage upfront. Over the next 40 years these aspirations were further defined, dropped or endlessly argued

John Smythe: Downstage upfront. 25 Jan, 2005 10:17am. Over the next 40 years these aspirations were further defined, dropped or endlessly argued. The first to go was the egalitarian structure.

I recommend it as a good read for theatre-goers and a compulsive read for theatre practitioners. Elizabeth McRae is an Auckland actor.
