In this new guide, two veteran theater directors steer away from providing a how-to recipe for staging a production and instead share the advice and tools that emerging directors need in order to nourish their skills and develop their own staging process. As Bob Moss, founder of notable New York theater Play wrights Horizons, notes in the introduction: "One doesn't learn directing from a book. One acquires experience." But by focusing on five crucial elements for staging a play-Story, Intention, Character, Space, and Theme-Moss, in collaboration with Wendy Dann, helps novice directors learn how to build their own practice and begin to master the daunting task of telling a story on stage.
