about this book

This is a simple and essential book about the craft of acting: it relates a technique developed and refined by the authors, all of them young actors, in their work with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet, actor W.H. Macy and director Gregory Mosher. It is written for any actor who has ever experienced the frustrations of acting classes that lacked clarity and objectivity, courses that failed to provide a dependable set of tools.
