Stephen Unwin, Artistic Director of English Touring Theatre, is an extremely experienced, award-winning director - especially of the classics - and has worked with hundreds of different actors in a multiplicity of venues. As he says: 'Directing plays is difficult' and the aim of this book is to lay out what skills are needed, and to give some sense of how they might be developed. The emphasis is on the professional theatre, but the book is useful for directors in other contexts - amateur dramatics, university drama, school plays and so on. 'Directing is directing, wherever you do it.'
