REVIEWS

"An easy and entertaining read that gives an overview of the job of director from the point of view of someone who has been directing for nearly half a century and points out quite a number of traps and pitfalls for an inexperienced director to avoid" ~ British Theatre Guide

"Witty, anecdotal, informed, informative, intimate and frank… one of the best practical discussions of how to approach a play both as text and performance that one could find today… a passionate, dedicated, lived and lively statement of what can happen when theatre is performing powerfully" ~ Manchester Salon

"Conversational in style, sometime stream of consciousness, the reader is carried along by Murray’s enthusiasm, passion and knowledge of his craft … Murray writes for the professional director but the amateur and student can pick up loads of tips ... " ~ Ink Pellet
