James Hayes

Shouting in the Evenings: 50 Years on the Stage

Matador

 

You might not know who James Hayes is, but he has managed to flourish as a working actor in Great Britain for some 53 years. Shouting in the Evenings is his story, from his arrival in London (from Ireland), training, early experience, and gradual ascension from spear-carrier to full-fledged “company man.” Lovers of scandalous anecdotes won’t appreciate Hayes’ narrative, which chronicles the everyday routine of theater. But it will be a valuable future resource for theater historians. Hayes has worked alongside Olivier, Paul Scofield, Anthony Hopkins, Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Ian Holm, Peter Hall and other giants of the English theater.
