Shakespeare knew more about the art of acting and the art of theater than any other playwright—             but there is no general consensus about how Shakespeare should be played. There are no rules. While the Bard created superhuman characters and placed them in situations that stretch the imagination to its limits, he also provided his actors with the keys to playing them. Discover his secrets in this remarkable guide. In A Shakespearean Actor Prepares, actor, director, and teacher Adrian Brine teams up with celebrated actor Michael York to reveal these keys. In pointing out sources of energy in Shakespeare's plays, they make it possible for actors to galvanize their fantasy and liberate their talents.
