The Stage Struck Me!
by Neville Phillips

The Stage Struck Me is a funny, informative and sometimes sad account of the life of a jobbing actor and writer in the 1940s and 1950s, full of anecdotes about the famous, the infamous, the charming and the downright loopy people he met along the way.

After joining the South African Army and serving as a gunner in the coastal artillery, Neville Phillips was transferred to the entertainment unit where he spent four years doing shows for the Allied troops in North Africa and Italy.

In 1946 he was demobbed to London and it was here that Neville Phillips met and got to know some truly remarkable people, as well as writing West End revues, pantomime, cabaret, and a musical starring Pat Kirkwood.

The Stage Struck Me is a fascinating and sometimes poignant account of times, places and people that played such an important part in a young aspiring actor’s life.
