ABout the Author:  Julie Ackroyd obtained her B.A. (Hons.) in mixed English and Humanities with the Open University in England; she then continued to study with them completing an M.A. in Classical Studies. Having won the Open University Travel Bursary she represented the University, in Epidaurus, at the first conference organised by the Archive of Performance of Greek and Roman Drama run by Oxford University, whilst there she presented a paper on ‘The Use of Butoh in the Peter Hall production of Bacchai for the National Theatre, London.’

In 2007 Julie was selected to be part of the judging committee for the Society of London Theatres Olivier Awards 2008 in London. As part of the play panel she viewed seventy eight shows over nine months in order to find and commend the best casts and creative teams working in London theatre.

Most recently she has been awarded her Ph.D. by Birkbeck College, University of London in ‘The Recruitment and Training of the Child Actor on the London Stage c.1600.’ This included significant work on the Classical literature which the English grammar school system covered in its syllabus. She is now working on the publication of this project.
