Quick Overview

This book is a collection of fifty-five "open scenes" for actors in nine categories such as male/male scenes, three person scenes, and non-gender specific monologues. The scenes contain little to no stage directions or indications regarding specific emotions. The actor learns to say, "I don't know" to many details of the scene, and in doing so, must trust both the text and him or herself, his or her partner, and the moment.

Reviews:

"These scenes are the sort of scenes that are needed in nearly every acting book, but which acting books, by their own lengths, cannot include."
      —Deborah Kinghorn, University of New Hampshire
