How to Direct a Play: A Masterclass in Comedy, Tragedy, Farce, Shakespeare, New Plays, Opera and Musicals by Braham Murray

This practical handbook takes us on a step by step journey from pre-production through the rehearsal process, followed by focused advice on each genre from comedy to tragedy, Shakespeare to new plays and musicals. Special chapters offer strategies for dealing with difficult actors, working with producers and taking on the job of an Artistic Director.

An indispensible guide to a director's craft, packed full of advice and peppered with priceless anecdotes about the highs and the lows of a lifetime's work in the theatre.

"Witty, anecdotal, informed, informative, intimate and frank... one of the best practical discussions of how to approach a play both as text and performance that one could find today... a passionate, dedicated, lived and lively statement of what can happen when theatre is performing powerfully" - Manchester Salon

"An easy and entertaining read that gives an overview of the job of director from the point of view of someone who has been directing for nearly half a century and points out quite a number of traps and pitfalls for an inexperienced director to avoid." - British Theatre Guide
< br>"Conversational in style, sometime stream of consciousness, the reader is carried along by Murray's enthusiasm, passion and knowledge of his craft... Murray writes for the professional director but the amateur and student can pick up loads of tips... a rattling good read" - Ink Pellet
