The three-act-play  “The Entertainer” was written by John Osborne in 1957.
It is  about an angry middle-aged man, Archie Rice, a failing music-hall performer.
In this play Osborne shows the big contrast between the glow of the stage lights and the suffering of the artist, which he experienced himself in his personal life.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
