The Method Gun

The Method Gun explores the life and techniques of Stella Burden, the actor-training guru of the 60s and 70s and creator of "The Approach" (referred to as "the most dangerous acting technique in the world"), which fused Western acting methods with risk-based rituals to infuse even the smallest role with sex, death, and violence. Using found text from the journals and performance reports of Burden's company, The Method Gun reenacts the final months of her company's rehearsals for their nine-years-in-the-making production of A Streetcar Named Desire.
