Actions: The Actors' Thesaurus

By Marina Caldarone and Maggie Lloyd-Williams

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£6.49

A vital companion for actors in rehearsal - a thesaurus of action-words to revitalise performance, with a foreword by Terry Johnson.

Finding the right action is an essential part of the process of preparation for the actor. Using this thesaurus of active verbs, the actor can refine the action-word until s/he hits exactly the right one to help make the action come alive. The method of 'actioning' is widely used in rehearsal rooms, but has never before been set down in a systematic and comprehensive way.

'If you want to act, or act better, Actions will take you a long way on the journey to excellence' Terry Johnson
