A revised and updated edition of Declan Donnellan's bestselling book, a fresh and radical approach to acting by a world-famous director.

'explains Donnellan's highly practical system and sheds unique light on one of the greatest directors of acting in our time' Le Monde

'hugely practical and never gets lost in theory' El Pais

'a gripping read, as acute about the psychology of lying as it is about the art of acting' Guardian

'rooted in modern theatre, modern psychology and, above all, modern reality' Izvestia

'Unpretentious, straightforward, and pierced with acute insight' Kommersant
