True and False - Heresy and Common Sense for the Actor


Buy Kindle Edition

David Mamet

Published by Faber & Faber

A pleasurable read that demolishes all the ethereal myths surrounding the clap-trap theory of acting and directing. It tells you how to judge the role and approach the part, how to work with the playwright and the right way to undertake rehearsals as well as the most effective way to approach agents

"It is a glorious book, stunning thrilling, provocative, funny ... a hand grenade in paper covers, designed to explode the pretensions, misconceptions and downright dishonesty of much of the theatre practice today" ~ Sunday Times
