Product Overview

Arguing for a radical reorganization of the stage director ''s view of his role, Terry McCabe challenges the notion that a play is the director ''s vehicle for self-expression. The idea of the director as centerpiece of the theatre, he declares, distorts plays and oppresses the actors. Mr. McCabe explores what it means to direct a play when directing is properly understood as a process of self-effacement and faithfulness to the playwright ''s vision. An eminently sensible polemic delivered with cogent examples and equally cogent arguments. Nicholas Rudall. A call to responsibility and dare I say it adulthood. It is also the fuel for what could be some constructive arguments among colleagues. Jeffrey Sweet.
