With this dissertation, I have investigated the relationship between the unconscious and accessing rich detailed sources as an actor. I have established a methodology for addressing physical and psychological blocks in order to find confidence, detail, specificity, and artistic integrity in performance. I have applied this methodology to my performance of Masha in "Three Sisters" by Anton Chekhov, which was part of the 2016-2017 Theatre@York Season. I have also written an extensive character, period, and author analysis of Masha and Anton Chekhov. During rehearsals and performances of "Three Sisters" I wrote journal entries documenting my process and the application of my methodology to the role of Masha.
