This book contains Jerome K. Jerome's 1891 monograph on stage productions, entitled "e;On the Stage and Off"e;. Within this work, Jerome reflects on his personal experiences - both good and bad - working as an actor in the late-nineteenth century. A fascinating and insightful text, "e;On the Stage and Off"e; is highly recommended for those with an interest in the development of theatre, and would make for a great addition to collections of related literature. The chapters include: "e;I Determine to Become and Actor"e;, "e;I Become and Actor"e;, "e;Through the Stage Door"e;, "e;Behind the Scenes"e;, "e;A Rehearsal"e;, "e;Scenery and Supers"e;, "e;Dressing"e;, "e;My First Deboo"e;, "e;Birds of Prey"e;, etcetera. Jerome Klapka Jerome (1859 - 1927) was an English writer and humourist, most famous for his comedic travelogue "e;Three Men in a Boat"e; (1889). Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
