This is an intensely practical handbook for students, actors, and teachers on how to cope with text, character, and situation. Barbara Houseman's method is to state a precept and devise an exercise to explore it. The result is a book with a practical exercise on almost every page.
Barbara Houseman has more than 25 years experience in the theatre. She has worked in the voice department at the RSC and as Associate Director at the Young Vic. She conducts workshops all over the world.
