Reviews

"Her book is a lucid and detailed account...(that) offers a clearly written practical guide to its subject. Both teachers and students will benefit because Merlin's appoach is neither prescriptive nor dogmatic...a sharing of experience and crucial insights into what can be gained from undertaking a rigourous programme of well-focused exercises. This is a provocative, inspirig and engrossing account of one actor's geographical, psychological and professional voyage of discovery. Aleks Sierz, New Theatre Quarterly, Spring 2002."
