The Drama Series includes three 4"x7" durable plastic cards developed by Mind Tools founder Ted Sharon, to shed greater light on the craft of acting.
Card three, OBSTACLES, contains 19 evocative obstacles that counteract a scene's objective. These ideas lead to stronger choices in the creative process.
A well crafted obstacle humanizes the character and will fit into the phrase:
What makes the objective difficult to achieve is ______________.
The ability to embrace an obstacle is at the heart of good acting.
These ideas are designed to compliment acting and directing texts and have been tested in class, honed in rehearsal, and proven in performance.
Also available: Card one contains twenty concrete scene OBJECTIVES, Card two outlines fifty playable TACTICS.
