Of Diaries And Years

One of my favourite times at the beginning of a new year is opening my new agenda planner. (Yes I still keep an old fashioned hardcopy planner, in spite of the fact that I also have the modern, and much more efficient, thing on my computer). As I open my brand new book it represents…

To Prompt Or Not To Prompt

We recently received this question from a DramaShare member: Rehearsal question: When rehearsing a drama without scripts, how long should a director wait to prompt an actor who is having trouble remembering a line.
