About the Book:

Irreverent Acting is a craft handbook offering a practical, applicable approach to acting, with very specific techniques used to create the emotional life of the character. The craftual process of "Obligation/Choice/Choice approach" is fully explained in terms of the actor's responsibilities to a piece of material whether it be a monologue, scene, play or film. This book contains 22 of Eric Morris' 27 "choice approaches" and score of other techniques which make it possible for the actor to fulfill all the obligations of written material from a basis or reality.

Subtitled A Bold New Statement on the Craft of Acting and Individual Talent, this book explores the concept of "irreverence" and the actors need to be "irreverent" to the material while exploring the character and other obligations during the rehearsal period. It also defines the two kinds of "irreverence"; Rehearsal irreverence, and performance irreverence. There is a section on "preparations", and the various types of craft preparations. The seven major obligations of material are specifically detailed, and there are numerous examples of "choices". Irreverent Acting is a specific manual on a complete craft system for the actor in search of a dependable process that is clear, and pragmatic.

It answers that nagging question that most actor experience: "Now that I have the script, what do I do?"

What people say:

"If you want to be still and full, Eric teaches 'The Stuff' — No one is more zealous in his pursuit of the work than [Eric Morris]." — Jack Nicholson
