The Rules of Acting by Michael Simkins

The Rules of Acting

Regular price £14.99 Sale

What are the rules of acting? Michael Simkins isn’t sure, even though he’s been an actor himself for over thirty years. Join him backstage as he examines that business called show business, from am dram to Hollywood, and from Shakespeare to ads for flatulence pills.

In The Rules of Acting he shares his hard-won wisdom. Covering everything from learning your lines to tilting for Oscar success in Hollywood, surviving a flop, to why it’s advisable to read the whole script if you wish to avoid improper relations with a pig, it’s the ultimate survival guide for anyone contemplating a life in showbiz.

Every purchase you make supports the work of Shakespeare's Globe. Thank you!
