Abstract:

This thesis considers my preparation for and performance in The Night Thoreau Spent in Jail. Through four themed chapters (ego, intellect, energy, and fear), I explore strengths of my acting that have become weaknesses. I consider their sources and how they have become liabilities to me as an actor. After examining these in detail, I use the conclusion of the thesis to propose ways to maintain these strengths as strengths by using them to counteract and support each other, thus allowing me to move toward a greater goal-that of transforming more thoroughly into markedly different characters onstage. The epilogue describes my first attempt to apply the proposals made in my conclusion to my acting.
