Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to study the background surrounding the playwright as well as the play itself in preparation of producing the play and then evaluating the production. The first chapter contains two sections: (1) the historical background, and (2) a script analysis which includes justification for the director's choice of the script and the translation. The second chapter is the director's prompt book of the production, performed on the stage of the W, Raymond Taylor Drama and Speech Building at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Included are notations relative to movement, picturization and composition, and necessary stage business. Stage plans and pictures provide additional material to aid in understanding the director's approach to the production. The final chapter deals with the results of the production and is divided into four sections: (1) the director's interpretation, the style of production and the mood he attempted to establish; (2) his relationships with the actors during the production; (3) the response of the audience; and (4) some observations the director made during the rehearsal and performance periods.
