Robi Polgar: Theatre Director, Playwright, Producer

Ah, who am I kidding? Theatre is an ephemeral art form. Catch it if you can or it’s gone, gone, gone. Sure, I have archives of past plays and other things theatrical. Most of that lot exists in analogue form. Ya know, photos you can hold in your hand. Posters from plays. Promptbooks. Got me a bunch of promptbooks. Maybe one day I’ll drop a digitized version of it all right here. For now, here’s a blurb related to things what I directed:

Directing highlights include: The Tree Play that there photo above is from the production, The Road to Wigan Pier: A (Socialist) Tea-Time Travelogue & Historical Musical Revue, King Lear, The Possibilities (Howard Barker), Ashes to Ashes and Betrayal (Harold Pinter), The Life of Galileo, Dracula (Steven Dietz), The Duchess of Malfi, Cyrano de Bergerac, The Beggar’s Opera, Scenes from an Execution (Barker), H.I.D. (Hess Is Dead) (Howard Brenton), The Mysteries of Film (Michael Camenisch) and The Beaux’ Stratagem. Other directing projects include Joan Littlewood’s Oh, What A Lovely War!, Cabaret, Flesh and the Desert (Carson Kreitzer), The Gifts of the Magi (Courts, St. Germain) and The Tempest (gnarly old Elizabethan gent).
