Adapted from Booker Prize-winning author Eleanor Catton's novel, The Rehearsal takes us behind the scenes deep into the process of a college theater class as first-year student Stanley struggles to get himself in the good graces of his pathologically driven teacher. Eventually he happens upon the perfect source material for their end-of-year performance, but performing it could cost him a blossoming romance as well as his standing in the theater department in this engrossing drama that provides genuine insight into the art of performance.
