Published by Nick Hern Books

A practical, hands-on guide to Stanislavsky's famous 'system' and to his later rehearsal processes - for actors, directors, teachers and students

The Complete Stanislavsky Toolkit collects together for the first time the terms and ideas developed by Stanislavsky throughout his career

It is organised into three sections -

Rehearsal Processes
Performance Practices

Key terms are explained and defined as they naturally occur in this process

They are illustrated with examples from both his own work and that of other practitioners

Each stage of the process is explored with sequences of practical exercises designed to help today's actors and students become thoroughly familiar with the tools in Stanislavsky's toolkit


' ... erudite but very accessible ... a brilliantly researched study' ~ Amateur Stage, Critic's Choice

' ... a great achievement ... a serious, no-nonsense interpretation of Stanislavsky's thinking written by an actor-teacher with considerable experience ... I shall be going back to this Toolkit again and again' ~ Reviews Gate
