    Publishing status: TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK

    In this follow up to his most famous book, An Actor Prepares, Stanislavski develop his influential 'system' of acting by exploring the imaginative processes at the heart of the actor's craft. Building a Character deals with the physical realisation of character on the stage through such tools as expressions, movement and speech. It is a book in which every theory is inextricably bound up with practice - a perfect handbook to the physical art of acting. The work of Stanislavski has inspired generations of actors and trainers and - available now in the Bloomsbury Revelations series to mark the 150th anniversary of Stanislavski's birth - it remains an essential read for actors and directors at all stages of their careers.

    The definitive collection of theatrical hilarity by one of America's preeminent humorists and playwrights. "Paul Rudnick is a champion of truth (and love and great wicked humor) whom we ignore at our peril." -David Sedaris, author of Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day, and Squirrel Seeks ChipmunkThis definitive collection of Paul Rudnick"s plays presents the pinnacle of theatrical hilarity from one of America"s great humorists. Popular for his wickedly funny novels, including I"ll Take It and Social Disease, comic screenplays like In & Out and Addams Family Values, and the Augusten Burroughs-like memoir I Shudder, Rudnick remains best known for his cerebral but side-splitting theatrical writing. With echoes of Neil Simon, Thornton Wilder, and Noel Coward, Rudnick plays like I Hate Hamlet, Jeffrey, and The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told are outstanding fixtures of America"s comedic canon.
