“Direct a Play in a Day”

Co-presented with


Banner Master Classes


About the workshop

A eight-hour directing workshop with director Clare Preuss.

Participants will be given the play Cake, by Donna-Michelle St. Bernard, a week in advance of the workshop. Each participant will chose a short excerpt of the play that they would like to stage. They will find their own cast and will be prepared to stage the excerpt chosen in one day.

This is a rare opportunity for emerging directors to develop their craft with mentorship from an established artist, while learning techniques for effective text analysis, staging, and design. Cake is a highly allegorical play with plenty of room for innovative interpretation. At the end of the workshop, participants will share their pieces with each other.
