App Store Description

A vital, easy-to-use tool for actors that will revolutionise how you rehearse. Based on the best-selling book.

Actions: The Actors’ Thesaurus is a vital tool for actors. It is perhaps the most widely used and admired book for use in rehearsals today – and is now available on your iPhone or iPad to help you find exactly the right action word within seconds.

Actors need actions. You cannot act moods. You need to be doing something with every line. You need an aim to achieve, and an action selected to help achieve that aim. ‘Actions’ are active verbs. In order to play a line truthfully, you need to discover the action that suits that particular situation and that particular line. That is where this app comes in…

It is a fully searchable, easy-to-navigate thesaurus of active verbs, that will help you refine your acting choice until you find the action you require to make each line come alive.

Features include:

· A to Z search, and predictive search function
· Emotional groupings to help you pinpoint the action you require
· Bookmark, note-making and random word functions
· Share your actions on social media or by email
· Full instructions on how to use actioning in rehearsal, plus how to use the app

For actors at all levels and of all ages, Actions: The Actors’ Thesaurus will revolutionise how you rehearse. Once you’ve started using it, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it.

‘If you want to act, or act better, Actions will take you a long way on the journey to excellence’ Terry Johnson

'Actioning ain't easy – but it's so useful' Zawe Ashton

Based on the bestselling book Actions: The Actors’ Thesaurus by Marina Caldarone and Maggie Lloyd-Williams
