About the Author

Mark Monday is a Certified Master Teacher of the Michael Chekhov Technique and serves as President of the Great Lakes Michael Chekhov Consortium. Mark is a teacher, professional actor/director and is a former Head of the MFA Acting Program at Kent State University. He has taught, directed, and performed throughout the U.S., U.K., and Europe. Mark Monday frequently presents workshops and papers on the Chekhov technique at many conferences, universities, and professional theatres including the Hilberry Repertory Company and Cleveland Playhouse.


Provides performers and directors with a practical set of exercises and also with a lexicon with which they can articulate their practice. This, in turn, supports a focused, structured and navigable pathway through a potentially difficult and precarious career ... if the Chekhov Technique appeals to you, [this] will quickly become dog-eared and tatty. * Youth Theatre Ireland *
