Synopsis: A coming-of-age story and a comedic tour-de-force, meet Jamey Fuller, a cocky California kid who achieves his wildest ambition: admission to The Juilliard School in New York City, the country's most prestigious acting school. Once there, he is sure, he will find fame and glory. He will dance on tables, as in "Fame." He will take his place among the Great Actors of his time, freed from the fear of becoming just like his father, a director of Hollywood TV spots. But the reality proves hilariously brutal, as Jamey grapples with Shakespeare, lust, disillusionment, cut-throat classmates and imperious teachers. FACES ON MY WALL is a privileged glimpse into the bizarre hidden world of an actor's training, a poignant father-and-son story, and the chronicle of a young man's painful gropings toward maturity.

From the Author: Beyond the Stage

Shakespeare's famous words "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women are merely players" help to reveal the secrets of both life and the arts. The ages of 18-25 are often called the time of Discovery and Transition. Before, during, and for years after this period, I never realistically thought of life beyond "the stage" or certainly my role in it. Life "beyond the stage" not only was something I didn't have a clue about as an actor, it was also something I really didn't want to face. And I think if I'm being really honest with myself here, was somebody I didn't want to face. It is my observation that many people (whether they are involved in theater or not) often suffer from a central belief of "not being good enough." We seldom stop to ask ourselves "good enough for who?" and this core belief often translates as "never having enough." Often it is the fiercely ambitious actor striving for recognition who suffers the most from the deleterious effects of this core delusion.  From my own experience, the majority of an actor's formal training focuses predominately on the refining of the stage character-- but what about the actor's character off-stage? What is the role of the actor in the drama of "real life?" It is my belief that if the actor/artist/performer were to change the way they feel about and see themselves in the world-- not only on stage but in the entire business of living-- that such an experience can be highly transformational.
For years after graduating Juilliard and stepping into the role of arts educator, I've believed that there is a vital missing piece in the training and education of the artist and it has been my personal mission as an educator, author, and a performer to help create an awareness of this essential and powerful ingredient. I give you Faces On My Wall, a novel to help transmit these ideas and to raise personal awareness for those on the path of performance art. Seen through the eyes of a teenager named Jamey Fuller who struggles to maintain the integrity of his "voice" while being an actor in New York, Faces On My Wall is about facing one's own fears and insecurities, as well as the realities of life, and ultimately about facing and celebrating ourselves as we really are. 

I hope you can embrace each stage in your role as a human being, as it unfolds, in the grand stage of this life, so that your voice continues to grow very, very loud and wholeheartedly you.

Jesse
