A Bright Room Called Day: Adaptation and Performance

Ebersold, Scott

A Bright Room Called Day will challenge my directorial skills and ability in many ways, most significantly in tackling the complex textual and historical analysis of the dramaturgy and the creation of new text through adaptation of the modern text to fit our current political climate. It also brings to the forefront my acuity to guide actors using nuanced, lyrical and complicated text, as well as challenging me to inspire a design team to create a theatrical world that elegantly advances in storytelling yet also pushes boundaries. As a director, I have a great sensitivity to text and a proclivity to make real a playwright’s original intent to create worlds that verge on lyrical. I also have an aptitude for creating or devising new work. Given the complexity of the writing and the challenge to adapt the modern interruptions, this play is perfectly suited to exercise both sides of my artistic interests.
