Green room: Should you ignore stage directions?

In our Spring 2 issue of Teaching Drama (out now!), we’re asking our Green room panellists …

 

We talk to actors and playwrights to get their points of view:

Modern stage directions are too often evidence of a failure of the text sufficiently to direct the actor

It is easy to misread stage directions and think of them as simply a “to-do” list for the design and stage management team
