John Abbott had a successful career as an actor before turning to teaching. He teaches improvisation, stand up and Shakespeare at the Arts Educational School of Acting in Chiswick, West London. He is the author of Improvisation in Rehearsal, also published by NHB.

'distils a lifetime of experience and is set out logically and practically so that would-be actors can build skills from the very simple to the remarkably complex'
