Director of Productions at the Old Vic for Lilian Baylis, Director of the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in Stratford and founder of the Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park, Robert Atkins was one of the first students at the (not yet Royal) Academy of Dramatic Art and worked with Beerbohm Tree, Martin Harvey, Forbes-Robertson and Frank Benson as well as being an actor-manager himself. Atkins' own, incomplete, narrative is supplemented by J.C.Trewin writing on the Open Air Theatre years and A.C. Sprague on his work as a director of Shakespeare.
