The Rehearsal Process: Heartbreak House

Producing Director Jon Jory and Dramaturg Michael Dixon, formerly of Actors Theatre of Louisville, open the segment with a discussion of playwright George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) and his play Heartbreak House. Then, actors in the Actors Theatre production of the play read a scene, rehearse it, discuss character development and motivation, and perform the scene in costume and on the set.
