It’s theatre, Jim, but not as we know it

First we stopped shaking hands, then we made alternative arrangements for rehearsals, then … bang! lockdown. We do things otherwise. As you can see from the photo, the angry men have lost none of their anger and are venting it, regularly, once a week, via Zoom. It’s not the same as a physical rehearsal, but it’s well worth doing. It’s an opportunity to get deeper into the text and the characters. None of us knows when we’re going to be able to get it into Continue reading →
