Description - Joan's Book by Joan Littlewood

Born in Stockwell in 1914, Joan Littlewood won a scholarship to RADA when she was sixteen. Two years later she tramped north, planning to stow away in a boat at Liverpool. The Manchester BBC detained her, she broadcast her story and met Jimmie Miller (later Ewan MacColl), singer and leader of the agitprop group "Theatre of Action". She joined them. So did Gerry Raffles who was to be her lifelong companion. She went on to found "Theatre Workshop" at Theatre Royal Stratford East where productions such as "Oh What A Lovely War", "The Hostage", "Fings Ain't What They Used T'Be" and "A Taste of Honey" were to transform the British theatre scene of the 50s and 60s.
