About the Book

Re: Direction is an extraordinary resource for practitioners and students on directing. It provides a collection of ground-breaking interviews, primary sources and essays on 20th century directing theories and practices around the world.

Helpfully organized into four key areas of the subject, the book explores:

* theories of directing

* the boundaries of the director's role

* the limits of categorization

* the history of the theatre and performance art.

Exceptionally useful and thought-provoking introductory essays by editors Schneider and Cody guide you through the wealth of materials included here. Re: Direction is the kind of book anyone interested in theatre history should own, and which will prove an indispensable toolkit for a lifetime of study.

Reviews

'Compact, readable and exceptionally good value for money, this collection of writings on the role of the theatre director is set to become a classic text for practitioners and students of directing alike.' - Manchester on Stage
