The Art of Coarse Acting or How to Wreck an Amateur Dramatic Society $12.99

Published by Samuel French Ltd

A Coarse Actor is "One who can remember the lines, but not always the order in which they come"

Recognised as a classic in both professional and amateur theatre for more than 30 years, this is the New & Revised Edition of the enormously popular comic guide to acting

Aimed at those thespians whose enthusiasm exceeds their talent, it's an outrageous spoof which ridicules pretentiousness, pokes fun at disaster and incompetence, and generally lays bare life backstage

It also includes the script of a short Coarse Play - 'Tis Pity She's the Merry Wife of Henry VI (Part One)

Great fun!
