Emlyn Williams was something of a novelty when he first appeared as the theatrical reincarnation of Charles Dickens in the early 1950s, but he was by no means the creator of solo performance--or even the first to attempt Dickens. The one-person showMoreEmlyn Williams was something of a novelty when he first appeared as the theatrical reincarnation of Charles Dickens in the early 1950s, but he was by no means the creator of solo performance--or even the first to attempt Dickens.

The one-person show is hardly an invention of the 20th century whereby an actor may showcase his talents and insure himself of an income. In reality this form of theatre originated and flourished in England more than 200 years ago, with its ancestry in the storytellers of ancient Greece and Rome, and the troubadours and minstrels of the Middle Ages.This ebook is the Prologue to the revised and expanded edition of ACTING SOLO: THE ART AND CRAFT OF SOLO PERFORMANCE. The pioneering efforts of 18th and 19th century British actors George Alexander Stevens (The Lecture on Heads), Samuel Foote and Charles Mathews are explored--as are the beginnings of the Chautauqua movement in the United States and such popular solo performers on the circuit as Gay MacLaren, who was dubbed The Girl with the Camera Mind thanks to her photographic memory.
