Voice And Speech in the Theatre

Stock Code:


Voice And Speech in the Theatre by J. Clifford Turner. With a foreword by Peggy Ashcroft. The achievements of the actor should be paralleled by a voice and an utterance worthy of our great dramatic heritage. That this is not always so is borne out by frequent Press criticisms of the standards of stage diction in the English-speaking world. Mr. Turner's interest in these matters is well known, especially through his work at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and the Central School of Speech Training and Dramatic Art. Written primarily for the actor, this interesting book aims at perfection in stage diction, and is a treatise of immense importance to all who realise that the living voice possesses more than a mere utilitarian value. The dust jacket has light to medium general were with tape ghosting from a removed plastic cover. The book has very light foxing along the page edges and the tape ghosting from the cover removal.
