Performance time

Wednesday morning – trying to squeeze in a quick blog before going off for photo shoot for next production The House of Bilquis Bibi.  This is how we like it – one production following the next!  It exhausts you but also keeps one buoyant!  Talking about exhaustion – we are spun out – opened four shows over the last two days.  Yes, they are work in progress, but many people are saying they are much more like “finished” productions.  I hate the word finished because it is never finished, but no script in hand approach here – the actors have magnificently risen to the challenge – learnt a huge amount of lines in just two weeks – and are playing effortlessly – really with such ease and sensitivity.  Directors, designers, technical team have so completely pulled this off – if you see all four plays it is so interesting to see how subtle changes on the set suddenly turn the whole world from a snooker hall to a beauty salon – it’s clever!  And the writers – they have worked and worked and been there through the process – checking in with their dramaturgs when necessary – nervous at the first performance, but very aware how it is this moment when you meet the audience that stays etched in the memory.  It sharpens us!
