Directing the First Production

Spring 2019

Taught By: Tea Alagic and Stephen Brown-Fried

Section: A

CRN: 1773

Credits: 6

This course covers the process of directing the first production of a new play in The New School’s 2017 New Voices Festival. We will work together on pre-production (including script analysis, design, dramaturgical research, rehearsal plan), rehearsal process, tech and previews. Assignments will include periodic reports and presentations in class, written work including text analysis, a final production book for your show and other periodic reflections, and in-class scene-work presentations. You will establish personal goals for the show and for yourself as an artist, and also establish common goals with the author of your play. We will take several opportunities in class to check in with each director/playwright team, including a debriefing at the end of the process.

Students who wish to enroll in a graduate theater course at The New School for Drama must be accepted into the graduate theater program as a full-time student.
