Today was all about meeting: meeting the cast, meeting the creative team, meeting the rehearsal space, and importantly - meeting the text. A first full cast read on our feet as we start to unpick this delicious, vivid, gory and violently beautiful language; as we start to delve into what Middleton is actually doing and saying in (arguably) one of the more obscure pieces of classical texts. Eyes are everywhere; it’s body not brain; death is gruesomely exacting; time seems fluid not fixed - just a few things that ring out for me as I travel home from today. So much to uncover. So excited.
