Don't Tell Me, Show Me by Adam Macaulay
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a collection of 'informal' interviews with Australian directors of stage, film and TV, talking about actors and acting. The author poses two basic questions: "from your point of view (as a director) what makes a good actor good?" and "what skills and attitudes make a good actor good to work with?". The result is an intelligent and enlightening commentary on acting in Australia today. This is not a 'how to act' book nor a series of profiles on the personal and/or professional life of the directors interviewed. The book is primarily aimed at aspiring actors and students of acting to help them to develop their craft, undertake training and revise ideas/ideals as required. Hopefully this book will also be part of the ongoing dialogue in the performing arts on 'how we do what we do and how we might do it better'.
