Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The art of acting in restoration comedy, the buoyant, often bowdy romps which celebrated the reopening of the English theatres after Cromwell's dour reign, is the subject of Simon Callow's bold investigation. There is cause again to celebrate as Callow, one of Britain's foremost actors, aims to restore the form to all its original voluptuous vigor. Callow shows the way to attain clarity and hilarity in some of the most delightful roles ever conceived for the theatre.

Synopsis:

Callow, one of Britain's foremost actors, shows the way to attain clarity and hilarity in some of the most delightful roles ever conceived for the theatre. With the text as his inspiration, he shapes an actor's sensibility, coaching a performance that will show full knowledge of the age.
