I was ITCHING to get this play into the rehearsal room and on its feet and I have been having a wonderful time.
I am so lucky to have such a crack team of actors. The play is driven by the relationships between the characters, so we have done a lot of work on who they are, where their lives are right now, and how they are all intertwined. My personal highlight was a night out with Marisa and Julia – Marisa’s choice first (a PTA meeting) followed by Julia’s (drunk karaoke) and Dan’s reaction when Julia had to carry Marisa home.
Ben, Carrie, Ellie, Joshua and Michelle have brought so much generosity and insight to the rehearsal room, and have made me cry with laughter, scared me and moved me. In this final week, we’re bringing the play together and I think the whole is going to be very special.
