15 Nov Rehearsal and Role Reversal
This week in drama we started in the morning with Rachel Mould saying due to changes in her care routine at home she will not be coming on a Monday anymore but will continue on Tuesdays we thanked her for all her help during her years with us. Next Brandon said he saw Anthony O Sullivan pushing Jamie’s carer David in Jamie’s wheelchair and he overheard me saying Role Reversal and said that could be an idea for a future production we all agreed. We then looked at a video done earlier in the year of various clients and staff at the White Lodge Centre in Chertsey being interviewed about their perceptions on Disability and how now disabled and non-disabled people look at it. We finished the morning with looking at a film made by Anthony O Sullivan about a presentation he did at the weekend about his local Riding for Disabled group or RDA for short. I forgot to say the video about Disability will be part of the Steep Rain show when we perform it next year. After Anthony’s film we had lunch. During the break some of us brought some Freewheelers merchandise from a lady who came in.
In the afternoon we had Warm Up first then we had to do a game in which we first of all stayed away from Luke H with a cuddly toy cat and then gradually got closer and closer to him. Then a quick tea break After that we started watching film of the production of Messages of Love and Hate we did not finish we will do so next week. We will also do the Monologues and Duologues we started last week.
In conclusion I enjoyed today’s session and I hope the rest did as well
