I mainly know Felicity Kendal, a British actress, through jokes on shows like "The Young Ones". But this book looked interesting, and it was. She grew up in India where her parents had a traveling Shakespeare troupe that performed for schools, maharajahs, and anybody who'd pay them. They’d gone there during the war to perform for the troops and liked it so much they emigrated. Kendal loved it too and has many memories of the beauty of the place and the kindness and friendliness of the people.
In her late teens she went to England to pursue her acting career and a lot of the book is about her fight to break away from her father, who expected her and her sister to be lifelong members of the theater group. She'd been raised conservatively and was a fish out of water in mid 60s Swinging London.
It's an interesting look at India, a young woman's coming of age, and finding a career as an actress.
