Richard III Rehearsals Day 9

On Thursday, as promised: more text! And we are almost there!

Fun fact: For a laugh (how we laughed!), we staged the news of King’s Edward’s death in a hospital waiting room. Now don’t go expecting a Shakespeare Special of Holby City- this was only an exercise.

 

Once again, we plowed through the text looking for clues on the characters. Avoiding stereotypes and giving the most clear and original performance is the goal. And we’re not far from reaching it. The actors read the text once sitting down and then on their feet after a few notes from our artistic director (Ricky Dukes) and director (Gavin Harrigton-Odedra.)

 

Friday, we read some more and then, get up on our feet with the text – we start staging.
