The words and wisdom of Constantin Stanislavski:

(For a role) add a whole series of contingencies (using the idea of if ), based on your own experience in life, and you will see how easy it will be for you sincerely to believe in the possibility of what you are called upon to do on the stage.

Work out an entire role in this fashion, and you will create a whole new life.

The feelings aroused will express themselves in the acts of this imaginary person had he (or she) been placed in the circumstances made by the play. (AP)
