Being Boycie is the story of a born actor who embraced the idea of role-play as a child and matured into a character actor of great originality and distinctiveness. John Challis has worked in a huge variety of roles, from the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre, to touring Tom Stoppard s plays in America, while in television he s appeared in Z-Cars, Coronation Street and Doctor Who and a host of other popular series. In Being Boycie, John tells us frankly and affectionately how he lived and thrived as a young man on the ups and downs of provincial repertory theatre, the mad hustle of early television drama in the 60s and 70s, and the stages of London s West End. He describes the pressures, the longing for his father s approval, his own massive zest for life and his chronic inability to settle down to a stable married existence. It s a story that s above all honest, touching and very funny.
