The subject of this thesis is a theatrical production of the one-act play, The Chairs, written by Eugene Ionesco, particularly focusing on the artistic position of the director. The director is the artistic leader of the play, and the material of the thesis deals with all aspects of launching a successful production from the director's perspective. This includes appropriate research for sufficient knowledge of the script, collaboration with other theatre artists in fully realizing the production, and rehearsal with actors in bringing the play to life. The final part of the directorial process includes an evaluation of the play's success.
