Yesterday was our first double-run-through day, and we worked out most of the technical issues of having a smaller set. The cast started to work more with testing what they will and won't be able to do in the new space. The first run felt really dialed back (perhaps because it was early morning), but the second was very energetic. A mix of the two energies, and an spirit of exploration, fueled today's rehearsals. As we get closer to the show date, the cast seems to be discovering a greater understanding of each individual moment onstage. Yet, the scariest and most invigorating part of all of this is that there are more epiphanies to come: some big and some small. No matter how hard we try to cure problems that we think may occur when we finally get to Scotland, we won't truly know all of what we need to do until we get there. Luckily, we won't stop learning and growing the until after our final performance.
