Directing Greek Tragedy

Carrie Cracknell on Electra

By Russ Hope

Ebook £3.99£3.19

Follow acclaimed theatre director Carrie Cracknell throughout preparation and rehearsals for her production of Sophocles' Electra at the Gate Theatre, London, translated by Nick Payne and praised by the Evening Standard as an 'urgent new version'.

With unprecedented access to the rehearsal room, the book outlines exactly what it takes to get a play from the page to the stage, from first concept to first night. It provides an invaluable, practical handbook - part portrait, part masterclass - on how to stage Greek tragedy in the twenty-first century, and a revealing insight into the work of one of the UK's most exciting young directors.

Carrie Cracknell's other directing credits include Macbeth and A Doll's House, starring Hattie Morahan, at the Young Vic, and Medea, starring Helen McCrory, in the Olivier auditorium at the National Theatre.

Directing Greek Tragedy is also available in Getting Directions: A Fly-on-the-Wall Guide for Emerging Theatre Directors by Russ Hope.
