Doris Day explains how adjudicators arrive at their hundreds of annual adjudications. Who selects them? Do they get training? How do they judge a performance? Illustrated by personal anecdotes, the author sets out the things which have influenced her judgement. She recalls good and bad treatment by officials and actors which will prompt everyone involved with Festivals to ask themselves how often they have been guilty of thoughtlessness. Doris Day is a successful actress, drama director and author of many festival-winning plays. She served as Chairman of the Guild of Drama Adjudicators, of which she is now an Honorary Member.
