I was hired to direct a youth production. No idea what show it was. Three rows of kids, middle school to high school age. Things were going well, but little by little the man who had hired me started taking over the directing. This is someone IRL I'm friends with, he's great with kids and would make an excellent director. Just as a test, I leave the room while he is in full directing mode, and when I come back no one notices. So I leave for real. I'm about a block away before he catches up with me. I tell him he's a better director for this show, the kids love him, and good luck.
End of dream.
