Biography work in Acting

An idea from a recent rehearsal for a play.

 

We took our personal life stories in phases of seven years and then said what was going on for us in each phase. We then stepped into character and did the same for our characters.

 

This was a good way of identifying points of recognition and sympathy between our personalities and those of the characters we were playing.
