You have to learn how to be brave in life. It’s not easy. Sometimes it leads to trouble - as Moises finds out on the Amazon when he ignores the voice of the rainforest, as does Mariama from Africa when she breaks an important rule. But sometimes there are friends who can help you to be brave - such as Hanna, who is determined to protect her best friend from a nasty clique.

Directors & Designers offers the reader insights into the working relationships of people in these significant and creative roles. It charts an understanding of the way in which these roles have developed over the last century with specific chapters on both the personalities and on the works created by these directors and designers. White has selected chapters which look at theatre and site-specific performance, the phenomenological, contested readings and mis-readings that can occur; the power of place and space and the signifying practices of scenography. The use of simultaneous playing spaces of the stage as a feature of twentieth century performance practice, alongside exemplars of collaborative models possible between directors and designers are also addressed in this volume. A string of visual languages for theatrical communication and aesthetics, space and the cognitive reception of design by the audience, and the manipulation of space by the director and designer, illuminate the creative relationship for the reader.

Take the Exorcist Steps to meet “the diverse array of ghosts” in DC’s historic neighborhood—from the author of Capitol Hill Haunts (The Hoya). On the banks of the Potomac River, Georgetown has had three centuries to accumulate ghoulish tales and venerable apparitions to haunt its cobbled streets and mansions. In this historic Washington, DC, neighborhood, the eerie moans of three sisters herald every death on the river, and on R Street, President Lincoln is rumored to have witnessed the paranormal at a seance. Along the towpath of the C&O Canal, a phantom police officer still walks his lonely beat, and on moonlit nights, he is joined by a razor-wielding ghoul. From the spirit of a sea captain who lingers in the Old Stone House to the strange ambiance of the Exorcist Steps, author and guide Tim Krepp takes readers on a chilling journey through the ghostly lore of Georgetown. Includes photos! “A great storyteller who, with a confident grasp of the facts and judiciously inserted asides, can bring to life both the haunters and the haunted. His way of ending his chapters with—gasp!—the literary equivalent of a horror movie organ chord lends a delightfully chilling touch.” —HillRag
