From Cindy: “The Art of the Monologue class was a unique opportunity for concentrated, intimate, character exploration. The journey of discovering the depth and breadth of a character, I have learned, is an equal journey of self-discovery as you become the character and the character becomes you; as you probe the emotions, motivations and back story of the character. Wren’s skillful guidance is invaluable in this process. She has a sixth sense about how to connect each actor with his or her character, how to help each of us reach deeply inside ourselves and pull out our best work. Her instincts are impeccable and she helps us all stretch and grow in the practice of our craft.”
