Description - How to Rehearse a Play: A Practical Guide for Directors by Damon Kiely

Based on interviews with over forty award-winning artists, How to Rehearse a Play offers multiple solutions to the challenges that directors face from first rehearsal to opening night.

The book provides a wealth of information on how to run a rehearsal room, suggesting different paths and encouraging directors to shape their own process. It is divided into four sections:

  • lessons from the past: a brief survey of influential directors, including Stanislavski's acting methods and Anne Bogart's theories on movement;
  • a survey of current practices: practical advice on launching a process, analyzing scripts, crafting staging, detailing scene work, collaborating in technical rehearsals and previews, and opening the play to the public;
  • rehearsing without a script: suggestions, advice, and exercises for devising plays through collaborative company creation;
  • rehearsal workbook: prompts and exercises to help directors discover their own process.

How to Rehearse a Play is the perfect guide for any artist leading their first rehearsal, heading to graduate school for intense study, or just looking for ways to refresh and reinvigorate their artistry.
