The Key Questions identify the information necessary to unlock each of the Acting Basics.
The Problem: What is happening? What must I do?
The most fundamental of the Acting Basics, the Problem defines what is happening in the scene and what you, as the character, need to do in response to it.
Problems range from what is actually happening in the scene (Literal) to what is happening in the larger context of the play (Contextual) to what is happening in terms of your character (Personal) to what is happening in terms of the production’s overall intent and point of view (Thematic) to what is happening symbolically as a reflection of Life (Archetypal.)
The more Problems you are responding to, the richer your Acting is.
