"Taking Stage follows the careers and approaches of thirteen women directors who have risen to the top of their profession in the British theatre. The various stories told here show just how hard the path and journey has been for women ambitious to have a career in what has always been a male preserve. They talk candidly about their own working methods and their most celebrated productions from preparation, to working on a text, to casting decisions, rehearsals, defining space and learning to take charge."--Jacket.
