A history from the man who created BADA
From 1984-2004 The British American Drama Academy occupied Balliol College in Oxford where American students of the theatre lived with and were tutored by many of the great actors, directors and writers of the British stage.
This star spangled event culminating in a grand evening in Balliol's Great Hall was the start point for the careers of many great well known names in American films and theatre.

"My time at BADA was in many ways life changing for me simply because of the people who the extraordinary Tony Branch invited to work and direct and teach there.
Sir Derek Jacobi
Dear Tony I’ve been reading your book with huge delight and admiration. You tell your Fascinating story with such humour, intelligence and, above all, humanity.
It’s a great journey travelling with such a charming and honest companion as yourself.
The creation of BADA is one of theatres’s great and brave achievements. It’s of a piece with the sense of adventure and daring that runs through the book.
Thank you !!
