Overview

Mark Sheridan, a descendant of R.B. Sheridan's elder brother, is 'stage-struck.' Though his theatrical ambitions are thwarted by a slight stammer, he joins Beerbohm Tree's company as an unpaid 'walk-on.' He tells the story of his two years in the company and his relationship with Esmond, a young actor. Interspersed with this narrative are flashbacks to his earlier life: his childhood in China, his schooldays in Paris, visits to London and its theatres, his university days in Cambridge, and eighteen months in St. Petersburg, where he witnesses the beginning of the 1905 revolution.
