Abstract Using Constantin Stanislavki's vocabulary for actor training, I offer an autoethnographic essay that explores my performances as a man, a man who does and does not measure up to the cultural ideal. I juxtapose cultural scripts against personal experience in order to demonstrate the tensions that emerge as I try to negotiate the masculine roles I have been asked to play.
