stealing a mantra

from Will & Me: How Shakespeare Took Over My Life by Dominic Dromgoole

If actors can get their voice in the right place, and if the play is good, and if the director hasn’t fucked it up with too much collapsing scenery, then the words they speak in that strong clear voice will look after them.

And the resulting mantra as provided by his “director friend:”

Find out who you are. Learn your lines. Get out of the way of the play.

‘Nuf said.
