Comedy Acting for Theatre

The Art and Craft of Performing in Comedies


Analysing why we laugh and what we laugh at, and describing how performers can elicit this response from their audience, this book enables actors to create memorable - and hilarious - performances. Rooted in performance and performance criticism, Sidney Homan and Brian Rhinehart provide a detailed explenation of how comedy works, along with advice on how to communicate comedy from the point of view of both the performer and the audience. Combining theory and performance, the authors analyse a variety of plays, both modern and classic. Playwrights featured include Harold Pinter, Tom Stoppard, Christopher Durang, and Michael Frayn. Acting in Shakespeare's comedies is also covered in depth.
