‘Now cross the Andes.’ In praise of the impossible stage direction

This is the article I was going to post yesterday, before I got carried away with Romans in Britain.

It’s all about stage directions and how different playwrights do or don’t use them, how they are interpreted by directors and how sometimes they are just plain ridiculous.

.My favorite is Exit, pursued by a bear

Anyway, read Mark Lawson’s article here
