True and False, Paperback Book


The Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, director and teacher has written a blunt, unsparingly honest guide to acting.

In True and False David Mamet overturns conventional opinion and tells aspiring actors what they really need to know.

He leaves no aspect of acting untouched: how to judge the role, approach the part, work with the playwright; the right way to undertake auditions and the proper approach to agents and the business in general.

True and False slaughters a wide range of sacred cows and yet offers an invaluable guide to the acting profession.
