Writing this one on the morning after. Went to bed early last night so as to get my brain ready for the work ahead.
We've finished the text explorations!!! A few of us then had a session in which we continued exploring the hospital plot.
More and more am I seeing parallels to the castle plot, which were not evident in my initial read through. Again: the power of hearing these words out loud with other people...
Ricky says we're behind schedule. But he's not freaking out. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't freaking out a LITTLE bit. On the other hand - I'm trusting the process - trusting the work we've done thus far; the understanding of this play and the text/physical explorations. We have so much to play with as we enter the staging phase.
It always works out.
I'm in awe of this company. I'm learning so much just by watching them. Very proud to be amongst them.
