In the second part of the class Michael works on scenes and monologues designed to help the actor understand and exercise concepts of their technique. His belief that the actor is in service of the writer reminds the actor to understand the time, place and life of the writer.

By choosing specific material for every individual , the actor is encouraged, through the chosen text, to go beyond their own person inhibitions pushing their ability to the next level.
