The Actor’s Process: Tablework

How much character and interpretation is expected of you in the first read-through, and what is the point of tablework? Both aspects inform character choice, relationship development and establish communication between a director and actor early in the rehearsal process. Discover processes for script analysis as you spend each session reading plays aloud in active roundtable discussions. Even if you are not a performer, those who want to approach classic and contemporary plays from a literary perspective (or those who share their lives with actors) will receive some valuable insight. Outside reading time is required.
