Parallel Lines (Day 4 of Assistant Director)

Great to be back with the team today after my weekend in London doing the National Theatre Connections 500 course. I am absolutely loving the final script- the additions and alterations made last week have transformed this script from a great piece of writing into a truly exciting and breath taking script. I have attached a couple of photos from the first couple of read throughs with free movement- the only rule that was added was to not use the chairs as chairs... I can't wait to work further on movement once the cast are more comfortable with the new script! 

Also great today was the preview performance of 'Plays in a Bag' performed by 4 professional actors. These sections of Dirty Protest plays will be performed at the 'Plays in a Bag' events, the first of which is tomorrow! These will be performed along side the brand new scripts written in the daytime workshops tomorrow. It was entertaining that I remember performing alongside one of the professional actors, Aled Bidder, when he was dressed as a giant hot dog playing a ukulele in 'The Wonderful World of Dissocia' back in 2011! I'd like to point out that this wasn't his only role within the play but the one I remember the most! The talent in the room today was phenomenal and I can't wait for tomorrow's event to see both the new writing and these incredible actors perform again.
