David Mamet's True and False

Updated: May 17, 2020

As a part of our March Actors' Book Club (ABC), we read and discussed True and False, which is an in-your-face series of thoughts and theories from master writer and director, David Mamet. In his book, he goes on a bit of a rampage against modern acting theories and lays his groundwork of what actors' jobs are, when it comes to responding to a script. And it may be a bit different than you'd expect...

This video is the highlights of a freeform conversation between Julie and Jordan and covers Mamet's theories on Stanislavski, emotional truth in a scene, the actors' job, and also offers some practical ways to put these theories into practice.

This episode is also available via your favorite podcast player. Simply search "Book From Tape."
