Following two days of intense rehearsal on David Lee Smith's new play SUPERNOVA we opened the doors to a sharing last Thursday evening. With an amazing cast comprising Matthew Aubrey, Adam Redmore, Bethan Witcombe, Zoe Davies, Oliver Wood, Arwel Rees and Gareth Jewel we had a rehearsed reading - on our feet, script in hand. The actors really did an amazing job - and I so enjoyed working with everyone.
The reading was followed by an invaluable feedback session.
It was a really exciting couple of days - and as I had always expected, Dave's words flew off the page. I'd like to thank all the actors for their amazing contributions - and S.M. Fiona for her quietly super-efficient behind the scenes activity!
When working intensively on a new play it can become a bit 'wood for trees' - so the comments from the outside eyes were invaluable, and supports many of our instincts.... I think that Dave is in a really strong place to develop his next draft.
The reading confirmed for me that Dave really is an exciting new voice.
Thanks to all of you who joined us - and to NTW for their support... and to Abdul for his help.
We'd welcome any further feedback.....
