More and more writers are directing their own plays and films, and in this intense weekend workshop, director Russell Lucas is bringing in Fourth Monkey Alumni actors for you to explore your text in collaboration with them.

Studying intention, movement, and rehearsal techniques, Lucas will reveal his methods for:
