Cicely Berry

Published by Oberon

A fascinating handbook for theatrical directors from one of the world's most significant voice teachers ...

Cicey Berry, the Royal Shakespeare Company's Voice Director, has been working alongside some of Britain's most distinguished actors and directors for over 50 years, and her expertise and experience has become regarded as second to none within the theatrical world

Within From Word to Play, Berry draws upon this experience to formulate her manifesto for the return of the purity of language upon the stage, calling for a move away from the over-literal view of language and the rediscovery of sound and rhythm

At the heart of this text resides Berry's concise and practical guide for directors in rehearsal, providing advice for all kinds of texts - whether verse or prose, contemporary or seventeenth-century

Invaluable for amateur and professional directors alike
