Process : an improviser's journey by Mary Scruggs ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Modeled after Stanislavski's timeless An actor prepares, Process follows a fictional young actor taking Gellman's real-life class. He undergoes the standard trials of audition and rejection before he takes the advice of a fellow actor and turns to improv classes at Second City. At first, Geoff thinks improvisation is about laughs and loosening up, but he soon learns that it is a powerful tool as well as an end in itself. Through Geoff's eyes, the book introduces readers to key tenets of improvisation: concentration, visualization, focus, object work, being in the moment, and the crucial "yes, and."
