Director's Notes, 2006
The beauty of directing is at once the beauty of theatre itself. Where else can you move people around to a story that only you can see and then hide behind the words of a playwright? On first reading ‘The Deer and the Antelope Play’ is a serious comedy about redemption. It is probably still about that on a second reading and maybe a third, but by the fourth reading something else rises to the surface that is a little more disturbing; the notion of kin, and who the hell wants to deal with that?
