Synopsis

This book analyzes the acting aesthetic of Brecht, Ionesco, Pinter, and Shepard and presents a detailed methodological approach to the performance of their plays. The originality of the book lies in the systematic and critical analysis of both the process of preparing a role and the shifting assumptions on matters essential for a coherent acting methodology for each playwright. The book is distinctive in that it focuses almost exclusively on the playwrights' published remarks concerning the theatre and acting, supplemented with observations by actors and directors who were close collaborators with the playwrights on productions.
