I had the pleasure to work with Caitlin on  our production of “4.48 Psychosis” by Sarah Kane. The play is very   demanding and I am so glad that Caitlin was our  director. I can confidently say that the project was successful primarily because of Caitlin’s involvement. Caitlin is an exceptional director. She possesses encyclopedic knowledge of theatre; she can tackle any kind of material and bring her unique vision to it; she is very empathetic and she is incredibly inspiring.

 

And , my god, does she take care of her actors. “4.48 Psychosis” was very difficult for me emotionally and Caitlin was there for me every step of the way. She created a safe and trusting atmosphere that was so needed and it allowed me to fully explore the themes of the play without fear, because I knew that Caitlin was there to support me and all the actors involved. Because she built such trust and understanding with everyone involved in the project, I have witnessed every single person, including myself, growing and opening themselves up. She also did a brilliant job at bringing the text of “4.48 Psychosis” to life.

 

She transformed a play with no stage directions, definite characters, or setting to a breathtaking production that was clear to follow, entertaining and thought provoking. All of the audience members of our production have noted in their feedback how creative and ingenious the execution of the play was. I was constantly in awe during our rehearsals of Caitlin’s ability to come up with fantastic ideas on the spot and her flexibility and just endless creativity while staying true to the text and its idea.

 

And though she had a clear idea of how she wanted the play to go, she was always, always open to ideas and she created an ongoing dialogue with us, her actors. That is a quality that, I think, only truly great directors possess. Working with her genuinely felt like a collaboration, like equals putting their minds together and doing their best to do justice to the material. That’s rare. I love working with Caitlin. She makes me a better actor every time I have the chance to work with her and it is because of her infectious love for art. I can safely say that she is the best director I have ever worked with.
