Ostensibly, this is a quick read; it’s short, 127 pages; the print is a comfortable size and clear font. But once I started reading it, I realized that this small tome was a geyser of thought to be savored and re-read.
True and False: Heresy and Common Sense for the Actor is, as the title describes, primarily for the acting profession – but in reality, it’s not. So much of this work applies to all artists and most of it, with a little thought, applies to all professions. David Mamet is a director, playwright and screenwriter.
Highly recommended – in fact, I wanted to get this brief review in before I loaned it to an art student friend.
