This paper investigates a practical and systematic directing approach for up-and-coming directors in Kuala Lumpur who may not have the time and resources to attend graduate school. This approach was constructed from production practice and multiple hours of classroom sessions over three years. The author hopes to elevate standards of local production practice in Kuala Lumpur; create a more vibrant, competitive and eclectic theatre scene; and inspire new directors in the city to discover their own directorial approaches.
