‘Acting and How to Survive It is a generous and impressive read, well-written, entertaining and packed with invaluable information.’ Reviewer: Karen McMillan, NZ Book Lovers

The first-ever book published in NZ about acting technique, ‘Acting and How to Survive it’ also takes in surviving and thriving in this most challenging and alluring of vocations. Tailored to the New Zealand and Australian actor, Peter Feeney has written an indispensable guide for both the beginner and mid-career actor. You’ll find not just the nuts and bolts of technique, but insights into the head game, winning psychology, and living an artistic life of resilience and integrity. Here is any actors’ one-stop shop, a book destined to become a must-have for Drama Schools and classes throughout Australasia - and the world.

Peter Feeney’s acting career began in 1994 after an Honours degree in Politics and History from Melbourne University, graduate study in Moscow and a Drama Diploma from Auckland University. Since then his square jaw has been a familiar screen presence, on both sides of the Tasman, in Australian, Kiwi, US and UK TV and film roles. On the other side of the camera, Feeney has been active at different times as a casting director and theatre director. He is currently writing and developing various projects, including a television adaptation of his acclaimed coming of age novel Blind Bitter Happiness.

'Peter is a very gifted actor who will always be genuinely interested in exploring his work and finding new approaches to it, and opening this out to his fellow actors.' Cicely Berry, OBE, Voice Director, Royal Shakespeare Company.
