The Director's Craft
on 10 June 2009
An excellent and very detailed account of Mitchell's approach to directing. Her focus is on "The Seagull" and it helps - but is not essential - to have read the play. The amount of preparation, research and analysis she puts in before ever setting foot in a rehearsal room will be mind-boggling for many students or wannabe directors. This is a welcome balance of intellectual rigour, insight and common sense - with no wishy-washy artbollox terminology whatsoever.
