No-one has had greater influence on acting as we know it than Stanislavski. His 'system' or interpretations of it - has become the central force determining almost every performance we see on stage or screen. His teaching is principally set out in three famous books: An Actor Prepares, Building a Character and Creating a Role. It is still the only comprehensive theory of acting we possess. In the first book, An Actor Prepares, Stanislavski dealt with the inner imaginative processes. In the second Building a Character, he concentrated on the body, the voice and other physical means of expression. In Creating a Role, the third book, he describes the elaborate preparation that precedes actual performance.Creating a Role "describes the elaborate marination that precedes the acutal performance. The analyses of Othello and The Inspector General, which make up Parts Two and Three, show a mind cutting through text like an inspired psneumatic-drill...Altogether Creating a Role is a brilliant little treatise and a careful reading is worth several lessons in almost any English acting academy" (Charles Marowitz, The Observer)

For the actor in need of nourishment for his gifts and guidance for his enthusiasm, this book is immeasurably important; for anyone with an interest in theatre it is terrific entertainment."
"We are lucky to have a third Stanislavski book that explains the rudiments of acting. "Creating a Role is a workshop manual. It tells an actor how to work."
"For the actor in need of nourishment of his gifts and guidance for his enthusiasms, this book is immeasurably important; for anyone with an interest in the theatre it is terrific entertainment."

"This newest and possibly best segment...focuses its attention upon the actual work of the actor in preparing specific characterizations from specific plays...A masterful job...Immensely stimulating reading--a valuable, a welcome addition."
