  • (1888PressRelease) August 03, 2019 - About the Book:
    Michael Wheatley-Ward has had invaluable experience of the theatre management business as the pages of this book will reveal. Here is a colourful entertainment all of its own of the risks involved in production management from the wings as well as front of house. A wealth of knowledge which has been gained through knowing and working with some leading actors, directors and producers in the theatre business over fifty years. From some of London's West End play houses, cinemas and provincial picture houses to the second oldest theatre in England, the Theatre Royal Margate. This centre was one of local controversy in 2007, which led to the creation of the Sarah Thorne Theatre in Broadstairs.

    For the reader, a second purpose of this book will be to gain an objective account of the events which actually took place through the reports of some of those involved in the experience.

    A second publication is entitled ‘The Learning Curve of a First Time Self Published Writer on Line’ published by Xlibris in 2014 is also on Kindle and runs to 97 pages. It is an account of the creation of the first book through self-publishing. Michael has been involved in theatre all his life, mainly in a non-professional capacity and now, as a retired university lecturer, he continues to act and direct. Collating this life story of Michael Wheatley-Ward has been a welcome opportunity for him, as it has set out to answer many questions about the professional theatre which have eluded him all his life.
