Product Description

Internationally acclaimed graphic artist: Drnaso’s previous title SABRINA was the first ever graphic novel nominated for the Booker Prize and the Orwell Prize

Every single person has something unique to them which is impossible to re-create, without exception. - John Smith, acting coach

From the acclaimed author of Sabrina, Nick Drnaso’s Acting Class creates a tapestry of disconnect, distrust, and manipulation.

Ten strangers are brought together under the tutelage of John Smith, a mysterious and morally questionable leader.

The group of social misfits and restless searchers have one thing in common: they are out of step with their surroundings and desperate for change.

A husband and wife, four years into their marriage and simmering in boredom. A single mother, her young son showing disturbing signs of mental instability.

A peculiar woman with few if any friends and only her menial job keeping her grounded.

A figure model, comfortable in his body and ready for a creative challenge. A worried grandmother and her adult granddaughter; a hulking labourer and gym nut; a physical therapist; an ex-con.

With thrumming unease, the class sinks deeper into their lessons as the process demands increasing devotion. When the line between real life and imagination begins to blur, the group’s deepest fears and desires are laid bare.

Exploring the tension between who we are and how we present, Drnaso cracks open his characters’ masks and takes us through an unsettling American journey.
