It was good I had met some of the team previously at a read through, but it was really exciting to meet all the different people that are going to make the play work in the same place. We did a couple of read throughs and then did some exercises which helped us get a better understanding of what we were trying to acheieve.
Second day was when we started working on the Tyler/Gemma classoroom scenes . It was good to get started , exploring how Tyler builds his friend ship with Gemma.
That he feels let down by the state. I feel this explains his anti establishment attitudes a lot. His look, his actions – all come from his frustration.
How incredibly positive they remain, despite the struggles they sometimes encounter.
I enjoyed seeing what everyone else thought of their characters. It was good to explore how my character interacts with the other characters in the play.
Look, cover, check. Bit boring. I also find actually doing the scenes help because you develop muscle memory
