"For the which supply, admit me Chorus to this history"
Henry V Prologue
Holy moley: has it really been seven weeks since the last blog post?
Well, as you are likely aware, there's been quite a lot happening here at the old SIR headquarters…
For one thing, WE'RE GOING BACK TO THE RUINS!!!
Also, for the past two weeks we've been actually rehearsing for our Main Stage production of Henry V.
It's a great play, and it's going to look (and sound) great out AT THE RUINS!!!
As of twenty minutes ago, I got myself officially (if not impeccably) off-book, so I thought I'd drop a quick line or two just to say how excited and grateful I (and everyone else to whom I've spoken) am (are) about (for) the opportunity to be working on this magnificent play.
Shakespeare has managed to create a portrait of war that challenges our motives and questions the cost, while simultaneously offering a moving and heartfelt salute to the unfathomable (from my perspective, at least) courage and sacrifice of those who fight.
I have been given the great privilege of playing "Chorus" and "Captain Fluellan", and I am learning much. I promise to keep you posted.
