Directing a Play, Paperback


Throughout any theatrical production, the director is pivotal to the success of the operation.

He or she is entrusted with the responsibility of making decisions that affect the artistic and often financial welfare of the entire production.

Covering all the stages of theatrical production, from initial preparation to final performance, this meticulous volume explains, in depth and yet with clarity, how to identify elements of a play that will make for a success, and how to choose and guide collaborators towards putting this into practice.
