Actors take characters â€˜from page to stageâ€™. They take the dialogue written by the playwright, and from it create a personality that they then enact each performance. There are many different theories of acting, and many opinions on what good acting looks like. Very broadly theories of acting can be divided into those that are naturalistic - being like real life, and those that are in some way non-naturalistic. Some of the most famous thinkers on acting are Konstantin Stanislavski, and Lee Strasberg, creators of Method acting and Bertolt Brecht, whose â€˜representationalâ€™ form of acting is very like the Portway Playersâ€™ performance style.
