Follow acclaimed theatre director Steve Marmion throughout preparation and rehearsals for the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith's pantomime, Dick Whittington and his Cat, described by the Guardian as ‘a raucously interactive and inventive show’. 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 pantomime, and a revealing insight into the work of one of the UK's most exciting young directors.
Steve Marmion is the Artistic Director of Soho Theatre, London.
