About the Book:

Everything you need to know to Direct for Theatre...

By the founder of the famous American Conservatory Theatre (A.C.T.) in San Francisco — a candid account of his working method as a director.

A Sense of Direction represents a life's work in directing. William Ball engages his audience in a wide-ranging discussion of the director's process, from first read-through to opening night.

Theatregoers will find this an informative, insightful, and often astonishingly clear look at the people and process behind the wonderful and magical phenomenon we call theatre.
