Day 6 of rehearsal already!! The show is blocked, the wardrobe fitted, the set underway, all my lines have been scanned, highlighted, punctuated, and even spoken out loud! All that remains is to memorize, then "suit the word to the action, the action to the word…"
Sarah has done an incredible job integrating these two plays into one, and the cast is champing at the bit to have our way with it: all killer, no filler! Less talk, more rock! Grant's design is gorgeous, period-specific splendour.
This show's got everything: tragedy, comedy, history, pastoral, pastoral-comical, historical- pastoral, tragical-historical, tragical-comical, pastoral-tragical… these are the only men (and women), or so Rumour has it! (it even has a character called Rumour!)
It's back to work for me now, but I suggest you buy your tickets in advance…
