A top-ranking director sets out his rehearsal techniques in this invaluable handbook for actors and directors.
Mike Alfreds’ Different Every Night is the culmination of a lifetime of work in the theatre, the most complete rehearsal methodology in print since Stanislavsky. It offers a vital masterclass for actors and directors, full of sound practical advice and guidance, and is packed with techniques for bringing the text to life and keeping it alive – both in rehearsal and performance.
‘Most of what I am as an actress I owe to Mike Alfreds. He gave me the language and the tools I needed for my craft’ Pam Ferris, from her Foreword
‘If I was allowed to train again to be an actor, but I was only allowed one teacher, it would have to be Mike Alfreds. To me he is a genius when it comes to acting and storytelling’ Mark Rylance
‘An illuminating and inspiring book… based in rich experience and acute observation of actors at work (and play)… essential reading for actors and directors’
