We've been at rehearsals for a week now and I feel a little left out. Why? My character doesn't have much to do in the first half hour.
In one way that's good as I can see the build up to the main parts for me and get a feel for what I should be doing and how. I've already worked out that my first small appearance is of a man who is just checking on his situation with the new boss.
In the second part, I'm frustrated and anxious and a little worried, but also angry and bitter and seeking to protect myself at all costs. Not totally sure about the third and fourth ones, but I have an outline.
I'm also proud of my son's performance...but I would be. He and his friend did well, considering that they have been thrown in at the deep end. They only have a couple of small cameo's but they've taken to it well.
Roll on next week and more rehearsals.
