MFA and Undergrad Directing Exercises

These are short scenes (15 minute two handers) with our senior undergrad and graduate directing students as part of their 511 and 611 directing class taught by Christine Brubaker. As part of this class, students practice directing through exercises such as the one you will be taking part in.
