Directing Tennessee Williams
Joe Hill-Gibbins on The Glass Menagerie
Follow acclaimed theatre director Joe Hill-Gibbins throughout preparation and rehearsals for his production of The Glass Menagerie at the Young Vic, London, described by the Telegraph as 'a deeply felt, beautifully judged production of a masterpiece'.
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 direct a classic twentieth-century play, and a revealing insight into the work of one of the UK's most exciting young directors.
Joe Hill-Gibbins is an Associate Artist of the Young Vic, London, and has directed at the Royal Court, Barbican Pit, the Gate and Theatre 503.
