Waking up at 7am to travel (initially to Ealing till we moved rehearsal venue) and then to Peckham Rye for the last few weeks is a mission, especially for a director who is not a morning person.
Sadly it has resulted not only in exhaustion but also neglect of this journey process.
Over the past few weeks since I’ve been quiet on the writing front we have begun to produce some videos on the play, short cast interviews which you can find here, digging deeper into who their characters are and who the actresses are outside of their roles. Moreover, Assistant Director Gwenni Hawkins has joined the crew and we have completed almost 40% of the poems which is quite exciting.
Our choreographer, known affectionately as Nicole, has done some stunning dance routines not only to open the play but to enhance some of the poems (she’ll have a person post dedicated to her and her work).
So we’ve worked and progressed – now you get to have a little back story on the lady in purple.
