Actor’s Nightmare

By | August 2, 2010

One performer reads her lines from a script. She may only read the lines written in the script. This usually means that her words will be discordant from the scene taking place. No matter what her scene partners say or do, she must stick to the script. Usually reading from one character in the script is best, but to avoid searching through the script lines from other characters can be read instead. The script reading performer still creates a character, engages the environment, but speaks only what the script offers.
