Theatre Directing (MA)

Program Available at Carmarthen Campus

The aim of our new Theatre Directing (MA) is to engage with the demands and expectations of the theatre director working in the contemporary theatrical context. In this two year study, you will examine the mechanics of managing a rehearsal room and develop strategies and techniques for a creative, collaborative process. You will be working with Theatre professionals and creative practitioners to understand and explore the work of the theatre director in theory and in practice.

The Programme provides students with the opportunity to develop and demonstrate advanced knowledge and understanding of, and practical experience, in:

  • the demands and expectations of the theatre director working in the contemporary theatrical context;
  • the director’s comprehension and application of techniques and methods for script rehearsal and performance;
  • aspects of the modernist movement in relation to drama and theatre through the work of selected European dramatists;
  • developing and staging both a Main House production as an assistant director and ‘studio’ theatre show as the main director.

Students on the program will work with core staff, professional directors and other theatre professionals and with cohorts of performing arts undergraduate students to produce work of professional quality.
