03 Oct Break Ins and Barricades
We had two visitors today – Jill a possible new volunteer and Adam who works with Sarah in Brighton.
In the morning we started with a Warm Up taken by Andrea. Then the Street Movement scene from Messages of Love and Hate. During this I went through Harry’s scene with Jamie’s carer Sharlott. As before most of this was without my script and I was told I did well. I then watched the others. We then made our way through the play stopping at the Political Cabinet scene during a war it included Harry’s scene. Then was lunch, during the break I helped Brandon get some props out of his car for a scene in which Vince as Ben tries to break into Emma as Carol’s flat and she builds a barricade to keep him out. Stephen I got chairs and other furniture of Brandon’s cars for the purpose.
In the afternoon they did the scene with Ben trying to break into Carol’s flat and Carol building the barricade to keep him out. We also did a scene with Ben now in Carol’s flat and Carol trying to get back in. We finished with the scene with the three ghosts bursting through the latex screen into the outside world followed by the other characters except for Carol and Ben, and Harry who is dead on stage. I think the day went well and the rest of the cast would probably agree with me.
