What You'll Get

This 8-week class is for directors of all levels to dive into the process of getting a play into rehearsal and on its feet.

This class might be for you if:
You are a director at any level who wants to refine your process of bringing a script to life on stage, step-by-step.

In this class you will:

  • Focus on a single play as a class, breaking down the text to define your individual vision for the piece.
  • This semester’s play is Aristophanes’ Lysistrata. You will receive translation options to read before class begins, so this class is appropriate for both directors who are familiar with this work and for those who have never read it before.
  • Once your vision is articulated, refine it through exercises in design, casting, and other pre-work.
  • Each director will be assigned one scene from the play to stage.
  • You will each put your scene on its feet with actors, exploring what it means to be in the rehearsal room and learning to communicate effectively, allowing actors to marry their instincts with the production's overall vision.
By the end of this class you will: Showcase these scenes in order, presenting the entirety of Lysistrata, at the Cherry Lane Theatre, the Off-Broadway home of Primary Stages.
