“An actor is someone who remembers … someone who remembers his lines, his cues … who remembers what it felt like to be spurned, to be proud, to be angry … who remembers the primordial impulses that inhabited his body before he was ‘civilised’ … what it feels like to be partnered, to be set adrift, to be reclaimed … To be without memory and to be an actor is inconceivable.”

-Charles Marowitz
