Welcome to our November newsletter. Commencing this month you will be able to read a series of articles. I have, over a 30 year period, collected and written numerous articles on the craft of acting and the creative process. The Articles On Acting post will be updated on a regular basis. You will have the opportunity to read up on everything to do with Acting and the creative process. If you are an actor, a director or you are simply interested in the creative process, you will find these articles stimulating and informative. The first article, in this new series of articles, is titled The Language Of The Stage Is Action. You can read it now by clicking on the 'Articles On Acting' link in the header above.
