Product Description
King Lear Director's Playbook is one of a series of Shakespeare Playbooks designed for prospective directors and producers to envision the play, and keep track of all the details involved in an actual production, from costumes to set design, stage management, budget, publicity campaign, designing the playbill, renting or securing theater and rehearsal space, auditioning the actors, enlisting the many volunteers, coordinating and keeping a schedule so that everything is ready when the curtain goes up. The entire play is broken into parts of scenes, with sketchbook space to determine where sets are to be placed, where actors stand or move, ideas for the motif of the era chosen and how the play is to be perceived. The text is somewhat modernized, with a glossary for terms no longer in usage. A chart of entrances and exits, roster of characters for the costumer, a quick summary of the plot, keylines per page, stage diagrams per scene are provided. The Playbooks don't describe how to interpret the plays, they are designed to stimulate creative visioning at the same time as working with a team and keeping on schedule.
