My goal was always simply to do good work without having to run about looking for jobs.
Following repertory stage work in Watford and Crewe, Abbott was invited by Tyrone Guthrie to join the Old Vic in 1936 where he played such roles as Nathaniel in "Love's Labour's Lost" and Prospero in "The Tempest". See more
