'This is a conflation of two books, Stop! C'est magique and Jeux pour acteurs et non-acteurs, with liberal additions and alterations as Boal has added examples of his latest ever-developing practice. As the title suggests, the exercises and games detailed are mostly suitable both for trained and untrained performers - it is fundamental to Boal's work that anyone can act and the theatrical performance should not be solely the province of professionals. The dual meaning of the word 'act', to perform and to take action, is also at the heart of the work.'
