The new, fifth edition of Robert Cohen's Acting One , the text used to teach acting on more campuses than any other, has now been combined for the first time with his Acting Two, (the second edition of his previously-titled Advanced Acting ). Together, Acting One/Acting Two provides a comprehensive and fully integrated system of all acting , from the most realistic to the most stylized. Part One ( Acting One ) covers basic skills such as talking, listening, tactical interplay, physicalizing, building scenes, and making powerful acting choices. Part Two ( Acting Two ) provides a series of exercises that encourage the student actor's self-extension into radically different styles (historical, literary, fantastical) and characterizations; then coaches the student through scenework in a variety of historical periods (Greek, Commedia, Elizabethan, Moliere, Restoration, Belle Epoque), as well as modern hyper-realistic theatrical forms such as the theatres of alienation and the absurd, and exemplary recent dramas by Tony Kushner, Margaret Edson, August Wilson and Doug Wright.
