Behavior and characters that were developed and played out as childhood survival strategies later found expression on stage and film as Robinson’s apprenticeship and career took him to sixties’ London, downtown New York experimental theatre, uptown, and Hollywood. is is a story how even the most troubled experience can be transmuted and empowered by the creative imagination.
