What We Did Today

Hello again my fellow Shakespeareans! As per usual, we began with a check in. While some of the cast were still anxious about the future, everyone was prepared to move forward. The social media concept was also expanded today with the cast creating Instagram profiles for their characters, resulting in many fun and interesting profile names from hrhoffrance to seventiethlord. Afterwards, the cast read through and discussed the rest of act two and act three.

 

Quick and Quotable

From the Play: “Before a knave though art a knave.” -The Clown

From the Director: “I’m gonna be quiet and let Hillel take over.”

From the Cast/Crew: “Why do you have pickle juice on your floor?” -Romy

 

Production Insights

With the casts continued use of social media to explore their characters, its become common place to question what relationships different characters have with each other. I find this interesting as most often, during the character work, many actors focus on what relation their character has to the play as a whole and how they can showcase that. An example being what makes a hero a hero and a villain a villain. However, because of a lack of clear protagonist/antagonists in the play, the actors most focus on their relationship with other characters in order to gain information about their own characters. This is an incredibly useful skill to have in acting and I hope the cast continues to use said skill with other plays as well.
