At a reception held in the Val Parnell Suite at the London Palladium the winner of the Theatre Book Prize 2012, administered by The Society for Theatre Research, was announced as actor Ian Kelly for his ‘highly informative and entertaining book’, Mr Foote’s Other Leg, published by Picador.
Actor Timothy West, who is President of the STR, presented the prize to Ian Kelly who has previously published volumes on Casanova and Beau Brummel. “I am an actor and I am speechless,” he said.
A “finely judged narrative” and “thoroughly entertaining” were the comments made by one of the judges, Professor Gavin Henderson. Foote “sees the funny side of everything – including the amputation of his leg”.

The Theatre Book Prize, co-ordinated by Howard Loxton, is an annual award first presented in 1998 to mark the Jubilee of the Society for Theatre Research. It was created to encourage the writing and publication of books on British, or British-related theatre history and practice, both those which present the theatre of the past and those which record contemporary theatre for the future. All new works of original research first published in English on British or British-related theatre are eligible except for play texts and studies of drama as literature. The winner is chosen by an independent panel of judges which changes every year.

Not just a blog, a philosophy
by Jack Monroe, bestselling author of 'A Girl Called Jack'
Realist, writer, reader, reviewer and rocker.
The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
