Overview

Stanislavsky, undisputed pioneer of modern acting technique, continues to form the backbone of much drama teaching, actor-training and theatre practice. Yet many of his ideas remain either elusive or misunderstood. This concise and readable book explains his influence, looks at his life history, assesses his widely -read text An Actor Prepares, and gives both a detailed commentary of the key 1898 production of The Seagull and an indispensable set of practical exercises for actors, teachers and directors. It is a complementary mixture of student-friendly analysis and practitioners' handbook. It will prove invaluable material for readers new to Stanislavsky while also giving some fascinating new insights to those familiar with his work.
