Actor and the Text by Cicely Berry

Book Description

(Applause Acting Series). These words of Cicely Berry, the voice director of the Royal Shakespeare Company, speak to anyone who needs to speak his or her piece in any arena, at sales meetings or religious revivals. Berry's book will insure that the speaker and the text gets heard accurately and with true emotional range. Never again will one be accused of simply "reading a prepared statement."
