. .paring down language and gesture so rigorously that his actors hardly seem to be acting.—Art in AmericaTheater is the room where performance happens. Where people sit and watch other people. The moment to moment event that unfolds hinges on our imperfect-ness. . . . Theatre for Beginners is a manual for the actor based in the belief that the person is interesting before the performing happens, and the essence of good stage work is rooted in a constant state of beginning.Richard Maxwell, the downtown writer and director with a deadpan aesthetic and an ever-innovative body of work, has written a quasi-study guide to the art of making theater according to his affecting affectless technique (The New York Times).

This illuminating volume will provide students and artists with a deeper understanding of Maxwells work, aesthetic philosophy, and process for creating theater.Richard Maxwell is a playwright and director living in New York, where he is the artistic director of New York City Players. The recipient of an OBIE Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship, his plays have been performed throughout the world.
