Written by David Hare

Directed by John Gulley






Tom is a middle-aged businessman at the top of his game.  Confident, cocky, ready to take on the world.  Kyra is a young woman living in the low rent district, teaching low-income students who could care less.  Years after an impassioned, turbulent affair, Tom crashes back into Kyra’s life.  His wife has died, and he wants Kyra back.

“You can’t help thinking that on some profound level these two were made to be together.”

- Ben Brantley, New York Times

Learn the fundamental tools of direction: play analysis, staging and composition, research and rehearsal process, culminating in the presentation of a short scene.  Previous directing training is not required but theatre experience on any level will be helpful.
