Directing

Study in Four Areas:

    • Script Analysis:  Establishing Theme, spine and overall action.
    • The Director: the period of study and preparation.  The director's notebook.  Rehearsal notes that work.  Relationship to designers, technicians, playwrights and actors.
    • The Stage:  a study in stage picture, atmosphere, rhythm, tempos, shape, form, climax and space relationships to enhance dramatic action.
    • The Actor: the discovery of character.  How to help and encourage the actor to find the inner life of the role.  How to guide an actor.
