The late Professor Emeritus John Gilbert's scholarly knowledge of theatre was intimately tied to his life on stage, the many and diverse roles he played and, importantly, the generosity characteristic of actors who uphold the words and worlds of playwrights. To a room of students, his teaching proposed that the imagined world of theatre had everything to do with the real one we were inhabiting.
