This directing course emulates a theatre director’s preproduction journey, by providing a methodology that guarantees production quality.
Good directors always know why they have chosen to direct a play.
The difference between the British and the Australian stage is that with the former, preproduction planning is a cultural focus because of a greater adherence to quality control.
To focus participants, the masterclass assumes the hypothetical scenario that they have to stage their play of choice within twelve months.
Examples from a range of plays, including the works of Shakespeare, will be used to guide the process.
Just because it’s a good play doesn’t mean that it should be staged at this time.

Who are you and what do you gain by doing this course?
You are an aspiring or semi-experienced theatre director who wants to change the Australian theatre culture.
You gain a practical and comprehensive preproduction blueprint from a London trained, MA qualified theatre director that is applicable to any play.
A preproduction document ensures that your theatre production stands a greater chance of success because you will have asked the hard questions.
The preproduction document becomes the rationale for your production.
If you cannot answer these questions on your play of choice, you have no right to stage it.
