Our Time of Day: My Life with Corin Redgrave (Hardback)

£16.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

'Our Time of Day' was inspired by Corin's revelation that after suffering brain damage he could remember little of his marriage despite the fact that for over thirty happy, passionate and turbulent years he and Kika had shared their love of acting, family and left-wing politics with ceaseless energy and commitment. With great empathy and wit, Kika records their lives on and off stage two great actors from two theatrical families. She draws upon intimate records of the thoughts and feelings that they had both expressed in personal diaries, writing with often brutal honesty. Finally she charts the poignant trajectory of Corin's illness, from the moment he suffered a near-fatal heart attack during a speech on behalf of the Dale Farm gypsies, to severe memory loss, cancer and his eventual death from an aneurysm in the brain. Throughout these troubled years both continued acting in plays and films, as well as strenuously pursuing the human rights causes they held so dear.

Kika Markham's life in the theatre began playing Violain a young all-star cast in a modern-dress adaptation of Twelfth Night at the Royal Court. Two of her most treasured stage peformances are the West End production of Noel Coward's Song at Twilight, not only because she co-starred with her real-life husband, Corin Redgrave, but she was also nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actress; and Homebody/Kabul by Tony Kushner at TheYoung Vic for which she was Nominated for What's On Stage Best Solo Performance. More recent theatre includes The Last Yankee at The Print Room, On The Record at the Arcola, Tribes at the Royal Court, and Women, Power and Politics at TricycleTheatre. Her television credits include Lois in Mr Selfridge, Secret State, New Tricks, Call the Midwife and Spooks, and playing Thatcher in The Line of Beauty. One of Kika's more memorable television projects was Dennis Potter's Double Dare. Few people know this was actually written around an evening spent with Kika after Potter had seen the iconic Cornetto 'Gondola' commercial. She also acted with Harold Pinter in his television play The Basement. In film, Kika has worked mostly in France, with directors Jacques Rivette, Arnaud Deplechin and Francois Truffaut.
