First rehearsal proper today, called for just the main speaking roles in the first two plays. They were late arriving – as noted before, some things are the same the world over – but once we began, everything clicked.
The characters I had imagined in my head came alive on stage: the devious spider, the sinister leopard, the flighty fairy, the cannibal and his wife… and, pictured, the lost twins: Hansel and Gretel’s African cousins.
Ideas, rather like the hornets in the first play and the bees in the second, are a-buzzing…
