ABSTRACT
An essay from the book "Essays on Twentieth-Century German Drama and Theater: An American Reception 1977-1999" is presented. It provides information on Director's Drama, a new subgenre of drama wherein at least one of the performers acts as a director within a drama. This subgenre would clearly illustrate the conflicting relationship between the outside and the inside of theater. There are two types of Director's Drama, wherein in the first type, the director is thus directing a play-within-a-play in a theater-in-a-theater, whereas in the second type, he or she is directing a drama's action and its characters.
