This title aims to demystify the art of directing for the stage. Offering detailed advice on every aspect of the process, it explores the ways in which a carefully orchestrated performance can be made to appear fresh and spontaneous. Topics covered include roles and responsibilities of the director; choosing the play and finding a producer; and planning the project. Preparing the text and anticipating audience reaction; developing the play and assessing progress in rehearsals is also covered. The influence of the director on audience opinion and response; the influence of the director on the actors and the technical team; surviving the first night; and preparing for long runs and tours is also explored.
