About the Book:

No Acting Please explores the theory and specific process of the Eric Morris System of Acting – a unique approach that has all of "the method" with none of "the madness". It is a resource used in colleges, universities, and acting schools around the world.

While his techniques are solidly rooted in "the method" he has gone far beyond the original precepts of the Stanislavski system and so many of the practitioners of that approach. Addressing the actor's obstacles, inhibitions and emotional blocks, the Eric Morris System is half instrumental and half craft. It presents over one hundred and twenty-five one of a kind exercises and concrete techniques that liberate actors so they can apply the craft from a being state. Often using journal excerpts and dialogues from actual classes taught by famed acting coach Eric Morris, these exercises teach actors to systematically eliminate their instrumental obstacles – tensions, fears, inhibitions, and emotional blocks – and explore the being state, where actors do no more and no less than what they feel. It also contains a step-by step explanation of sense memory. The first of five books, No Acting Please is a wonderful introduction to the Eric Morris System. Complete with photographs of actors involved in the process. Co-authored by Joan Hotchkis, with excerpts from her journal.
