24.02.11 | Katie Allen
Actor Simon Callow's memoir My Life in Pieces (Nick Hern Books) has won the Sheridan Morley Prize for Theatre Biography.
The "Four Weddings and a Funeral" actor combined "zest, originality and passion" in the memoir to win the £2,000 prize, according to the judges.
He beat a shortlist comprising Reluctant Escapologist by stablemate Mike Bradwell, Finishing the Hat by Stephen Sondheim (Ebury), Putting it On by Michael Codron and Alan Strachan (Duckworth) and Born Brilliant –The Life of Kenneth Williams by Christopher Stevens (John Murray).
The Sheridan Morley Prize is awarded annually for the best biography, autobiography or diary of a theatrical or show‐business subject published in the English language.
