William Esper, one of the most celebrated acting teachers of our time, takes us through his step-by-step approach to the central challenge of advanced acting work: creating and playing a character. Esper’s first book, The Actor’s Art and Craft, earned praise for describing the basics taught in his famous first-year acting class. The Actor’s Guide to Creating a Character continues the journey. In these pages, co-author Damon DiMarco vividly re-creates Esper’s second-year course, again through the experiences of a fictional class. Esper’s training builds on Sanford Meisner’s legendary exercises, a world-renowned technique that Esper further developed through his long association with Meisner and the decades he has spent training a host of distinguished actors. His approach is flexible enough to apply to any role, helping actors to create characters with truthful and compelling inner lives.

This work is dedicated to building and understanding of how this country's only government subsidized arts support organization came into existence.

A survey was conducted to identify the range of theatre organizations that apply for and receive funding. Readers will also find a good look at the NEA Theatre program and that branch of the Endowment's selection process. The author's conclusion offers some suggestions for improvement. In addition, there is a section on the NEA's legislative history and a summary on the -state of the arts, - particularly for the smaller, newer and experimental groups."
