The Corsair

Naka, Katherine Chiyeko

I chose The Corsair as my thesis for many reasons. The fact that it’s not a play was one of the foremost and it cuts right to the core of some of my largest theatrical proclivities. It broke my heart to tell my well intentioned, very handsome and rugged looking playwriting teacher from undergrad that no; I didn’t think I was going to direct “plays”. There is something happening in live performance right now on a larger scale, and unfortunately I don’t think it has very much to do with traditional playwrights.
