The purpose of this paper is chiefly to act as a journal of a theatrical production. It will try to record the major and representative events which led to the December 4th through 7th, 1963 production of A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller. The paper will include some of the things I have learned in directing this production. It is not, however, meant to be a "How to Direct a Play" manual and therefore should not be expected to be complete in all details. A work of that type would comprise at least a thousand pages.
