Subject:        Finding Truth on the Stage

To fellow actors, directors and audience members!

I'm currently researching what I feel as a highly topical subject ...
finding truth on the stage.  Especially in classical theatre.

What I would like to know is what everyone out there feels the actor
needs to portray the writers work in an authentic way.  So that when the
audience leave they feel that they have been through a sort of catharsis
or realisation.  They feel that they have been touched in some special

So what is it that the actor needs?  What does the director want?  And
what is it that the audience like to see?

I'm after some thoughts on tools and techniques used to find this

Any comments, opinions, relevant material would be FANTASTIC!!!

Kind regards
New Zealand
