Follow acclaimed theatre director Nikolai Foster throughout preparation and rehearsals for his production of Great Expectations for English Touring Theatre, described by The Reviews Hub as ‘a superbly effective reimagining… which breathes a new vibrancy into this well-known story’. First published as part of Getting Directions: A Fly-on-the-Wall Guide for Emerging Theatre Directors.
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 stage adaptations, and a revealing insight into the work of one of the UK's most exciting young directors.
Nikolai Foster is Artistic Director of the Curve in Leicester.
