Imagine you were going to put on your own production of True West. Play the role of director and create a production plan that includes the following:
- Notes on casting -- What sort of qualities would you be looking for in the actors? Feel free to mention any currently working actors who would be a good fit--if money, availability, and interest were no problem.
- Notes on staging -- How would you design the set, lighting, costumes, props, sound, and makeup? Be specific where appropriate. In general, how would you want your version to "look." Feel free to change the time period or setting, as long as you keep the script in place.
- Notes on directing -- What strategies would you have for the performances? Think about how you would inform your actors' decisions. Think movement, delivery of lines, attitudes, etc.
