The Actor's Ways and Means is a new edition of Michael Redgrave's famous book on acting — with a new introduction by his daughter Vanessa Redgrave.

Written when Michael Redgrave was at the height of his power and acclaim, The Actor's Ways and Means is a spirited and knowledgeable account of the most influential ideas about the art and craft of acting. Drawing on his own direct experience, Redgrave evaluates the influence of famous actors and directors, from Copeau to Stanislavski, from Meyerhold to Edward Gordon Craig.

This new edition is supplemented with sixteen pages of photos from the Redgrave family collection.
