Katie Mitchell on the art and craft of directing
20th January 2009
FOCUS ON DIRECTING
Top director Katie Mitchell talks to Aleks Sierz about her book, The Director’s Craft: A Handbook for the Theatre (Routledge, 2008), which explains all aspects of directing for the stage, from choosing the play to surviving the press night. Recorded at the National.
When I was starting out, there was no friendly, warm handbook that would help me get out of some of the nasty corners I found myself in.
