A directorial concept is how the director envisions the play. It is a written expression of how the director
will approach the play and what s(he) wants the audience to take away from the show. The concept
defines the central themes, ideas, mood, tone, and visual appeal of the play. The DC is the unifying idea
that the production team will try to create—it is the specific point of view the play will be approached
from. Basically, it is your analysis of the play (use the answers from the guiding questions for this) and
your general ideas about what you would want to do as a director to make sure that the audience
understood what you wanted them to feel, think, or know about the show.
