5. True or False:
Ok... This is not a blog. You caught us! But it is a book by celebrated playwright David Mamet. In TRUE AND FALSE he outlines his view of the acting profession, taking a jackhammer to the idols of some widely encouraged acting philosophies. He outlines his beliefs on how to undertake auditions and rehearsals, all in that trademark 'Mamet' style and demonstrates his views on dealing with agents and directors and staying faithful to the script. Mamet's tone is not for everyone, and we encourage everyone to really consider if you agree - but he offers a different view, a different way of thinking, and each page offers its own kind of inspiration. Just turn them with care!?!
