Interview with Cicely Berry

A wonderful interview, Jane Boston (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama) talks with Cicely Berry, legendary voice coach and human being.

What do you do when you have different directors with different idealogical approaches to the work, for example Trevor Nunn, who looked for “depth of feeling within characters”, or Terry Hands who focussed on the story-telling aspect, calling for “faster and louder”, while John Bardon looked to “honouring the structure of the verse”

“I had to find different strategies to help actors to find their own response, and yet honour what the director wanted”

And so much more…Enjoy!
