The original title of the book: Dead Now Of Course

‘My future mother-in-law burst into tears when she heard her son was to marry an actress. There’s still something disturbing, I grant you, about the word “actress”. If an MP or some other outstanding person plays fast and loose with an actress the world is unsurprised. She is certainly no better than she should be, and probably French…’

As well as being a mother (to the actresses Sophie and Emma Thompson) and a devoted carer to her own mother and mother-in-law, Phyllida Law is also a distinguished actress, and Dead Now Of Course is the tale of her early acting career.

As a young member of a travelling company, Phyllida learned to cope with whatever was thrown at her, from making her own false eyelashes to battling flammable costumes and rogue cockroaches. We find her in Mrs Miller’s digs, which were shared with a boozy monkey bought from Harrods, an Afghan hound known as the ‘the flying duster’, several hens and various children.

Filled with funny, charming anecdotes, Dead Now Of Course paints a fascinating picture of life in the theatre – and at the heart of the story is an enchanting account of Phyllida’s courtship with her future husband, the actor and writer Eric Thompson.

    i loved her two previous books about looking after her mother and mother in law. but this one gives the impression of being patched together from snippets, and isn't really worth keeping once you've read it.

  • By Susan Ogden on 29 August 2017

    I loved this book! Quick and easy to read and written with wit and candid humour. Phyllida's experiences of theatre life are fun to share.

    Just wish that it was twice the length or more. Phyllida Law is so funny and endearing. Awaiting multiple sequels.
