THE SECOND EDITION OF THIS TITLE, ENTITLED ACTOR TRAINING, IS NOW AVAILABLE.
Actor training is arguably the central phenomenon of twentieth century theatre making. Here for the first time, the theories, training exercises and productions of fourteen directors are analysed in a single volume, each one written by a leading expert.
The practitioners included are:
* Stella Adler
* Bertolt Brecht
* Joseph Chaikin
* Jacques Copeau
* Joan Littlewood
* Vsevelod Meyerhold
* Konstantin Stanislavsky
* Eugenio Barba
* Peter Brook
* Michael Chekhov
* Jerzy Grotowski
* Sanford Meisner
* Wlodimierz Staniewski
* Lee Strasbourg
Each chapter provides a unique account of specific training exercises and an analysis of their relationship to the practitioners theoretical and aesthetic concerns. The collection examines the relationship between actor training and production and considers how directly the actor training relates to performance.
With detailed accounts of the principles, exercises and their application to many of the landmark productions of the past hundred years, this book will be invaluable to students, teachers, practitioners, and academics alike.

Alison Hodge is a lecturer in drama at Royal Holloway, University of London.Review:
This excellent volume presents authoritative explications of a number of the contending positions... Including an excellent bibliography, notes, and some illustrations, this volume is recommended to students of acting on all levels and to their teachers, who may be led to reexamine their own work..
–R. Sugarman, Choice
It is a very exciting and worthwhile project which will certainly be widely welcomed.
