    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Normally, ... I don't read new plays. This is a professional deformation I have. If I'm lucky, I can work for another 10 years. But, since there are so many first-class plays in world drama, why should I do the lousy plays of today? However, I told Brian McMaster that Harrower's Knives and Hens was a big success in Germany and Brian brought us together. David came to stay for a weekend in Italy and I tried to talk to him about ideas and structure. I thought it was a total disaster: no contact, no real communication. The next thing I knew David had come up with an amazing first draft of Blackbird.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It is about a man and woman who meet 15 years after their affair. The girl is now 27, the man 55. I talked to David about my own experiences, though not, I assure you, with young girls. I also suggested he introduce a third character: the 12-year-old daughter of the hero's new girlfriend. When she starts to caress him, you can imagine the tremors this creates in the ex-lover. But this is not Lolita nor is it a play about paedophilia: it's a play about love. It's also about a world where 12-year-olds are treated as consumers, where advertising uses sex as a means of enticement and where kids have easy access to internet porn.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[This is just one of a vast number of plays and operas Stein has scheduled over the next five years, including Oedipus at Colonus with Michel Piccoli in Paris, a trio of Tchaikovsky's Pushkin-based operas in Lyons, Henze's The Bassarids in Amsterdam, Monteverdi's Return of Ulysses in Strasbourg, Botho Strauss's The Park in Italy and Shakespeare's Richard II in Russia.] It's a nightmare, ... I think I should cancel some. Or perhaps I should ask them to give me the money now so that, when I die, they will have paid me a third without getting the show. Then I can spin in my grave laughing.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[Stein has also been invited to stage Troilus and Cressida for McMaster's final Edinburgh festival next year and then take it to Stratford as part of the RSC's year-long Bardathon.] If I do it, ... I will dedicate it to John Barton. I never forget his 1960s production and its focus on Hector and Achilles. I was also thrilled by the scene where Cressida comes to these Greek assholes and everyone wants to screw her. It was fantastic. But I always steal from others. We directors are not giants. We are dwarves all standing on each other's shoulders in an effort to reach the text.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It was a major factor for us that we didn't want our parents to have to pay for this volunteer trip. We wanted to raise the money ourselves because it would be a bigger accomplishment.”
