Description

This book is a collection of "open scenes" for actors. The scenes contain little to no stage directions and no indications regarding specific emotions. The actor learns to say "I don't know" to many details of the scene. This is on purpose. In this way the actor must trust both the text and him- or herself, his or her partner, and the moment.

Review quote

....these scenes are the sort of scenes that are needed in nearly every acting book, but which acting books, by their own lengths, cannot include. -- Deborah Kinghorn, University of New Hampshire
