From Word to Play  

A Textual Handbook for Actors and Directors

From Word to Play $26.32 ex GST
$28.95 inc GST

Widely regarded as one of the most significant voice teachers in the world, Cicely Berry, the Royal Shakespeare Company's Voice Director, has been working alongside some of Britain's greatest actors and directors for over fifty years.

From Word to Play draws on Cicely's extensive experience of working with theatre companies across the globe. It is her manifesto for a return to the words themselves: for moving away from and over-conceptualised, over-literal view of language and rediscovering the meaning in its sounds and rhythms.

At the heart of this book is a concise, practical guide for directors in rehearsal, setting out work strategies that help bring out both the shape and the details within all kinds of text - whether verse or prose, seventeenth-century or contemporary.

Foreword by Michael Boyd, Artistic Director of the RSC.
