The work of the playwright is necessarily an interpretation and reflection of his time. The work of the company in a theatrical production is necessarily an interpretation and reflection of the playwright as he is seen through their own time. These works are readily perceived by the audience in the living theatre experiences through the sensory impressions of their eyes and ears.

In contrast to that which the audience perceives, the world of the director is unknown. Despite the fact that he is the premier artistic coordinator, his job is completed when the curtain rises, with the spectators viewing the finished product and knowing little of its inception and creation.

This thesis will show what goes into and comes out of tho director's analyzing, interpreting, and mounting of a production of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men.
