Organization of the book : SYNOPSIS
There are four parts (not two) in this book: Actor, Acting, showcases and the HOMEWORK. Five Parts, sorry: the last is the Apparatus (support pages).
The three and four (Theory in Action: Monologues & Scenes) are the most important. If you want to appreciate acting and theatre, you can skip it, but if you want to act -- you must do it, the homework. Try -- and you will notice that you have to go back to the two previous parts on theory of acting.
You must have you your actor's journal ready and take notes. If you do not have the journal, go, buy yourself a big notebook and come back.
Do you have your scene or monologue selected?
Go and get it! Put it in your journal -- you will be working on PRACTICAL tasks. (You might get it from my "Theatre w/Anatoly" site -- go to SHOWS directory, I have some from the plays I directed.
Where can I download the full text, Anatoly? Nowhere, not yet, kid!
