Sisters (are doing it for themselves)…

posted in: Production | 0

First full rehearsal, and it was slow going.  I’d hoped to 1. read through the Three Sisters play, 2. try out some cast created sound effects, and 3. maybe divide the cast into the three families in the play… but as it happened we didn’t even finish 1.

There were various reasons – a few of the cast weren’t there, or had dropped out, or both; not all of the chosen cast were as focused as one would want; but mostly, I had been over-ambitious, and hadn’t organised enough for everyone to do.

Early days and all that, and maybe not the worst thing to remind myself that putting on a play, any play, is not a piece of cake; and that a complex play, like this one, is an even more difficult piece of confectionery.
