Theatre Craft is an all-encompassing, practical guide for anyone working in the theatre, from the enthusiastic amateur to the committed professional. With entries arranged alphabetically, Theatre Craft offers advice on all areas of directing, from Acting, Adaptation, and Accent to Sound Effects, Superstition, Trap Doors and Wardrobe. Enlightening and entertaining by turns, the celebrated director John Caird, a man with a wealth of international experience and success, shares his profound knowledge to provide an invaluable companion to anyone creating any size of play, musical, or opera - from the backroom of a bar to a full-scale production on Broadway. This is required reading for the modern theatre practitioner. Internationally renowned theatre director John Caird has directed and adapted countless productions of plays, operas, and musicals for the Royal Shakespeare Company, London's National Theatre, in the West End, and on Broadway - from Les Miserables and Nicholas Nickleby to Hamlet and Peter Pan.
