Actor and the Target, The  

Actor and the Target, The $23.63 ex GST
$25.99 inc GST

A revised and updated edition of Declan Donnellan's bestselling book, a fresh and radical approach to acting.

The Actor and the Target takes a scalpel to the heart of persistent fears from 'I don't know what I'm doing!' through 'I don't know who I am!' to 'I don't know what I'm playing!'

Practically and modestly written, Declan Donnellan's book helps actors to release their talent and to be free on stage. However, Donnellan's path leads to wider perspectives; his book is rooted in modern theatre, modern psychology and, above all, modern reality. Written with wit and elegance, The Actor and the Target will be thoroughly enjoyed not only by the actors of a new millennium, but also by those of us who see the stage from the dark auditorium -  Izvestia
