Directing Tennessee Williams

Follow acclaimed theatre director Joe Hill-Gibbins throughout preparation and rehearsals for his production of The Glass Menagerie at the Young Vic, London, described by the Telegraph as ‘a deeply felt, beautifully judged production of a masterpiece’. 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 direct a classic twentieth-century play, and a revealing insight into the work of one of the UK's most exciting young directors.

Joe Hill-Gibbins is an Associate Artist of the Young Vic, London, and has directed at the Royal Court, Barbican Pit, the Gate and Theatre 503.
