On Thursday we perform Famous Island. We had a few glitches tonight, but nothing major and, thankfully, we have a small set to put up and take down: two chairs, one lounger and one table. Our props are in two boxes, we have our costumes ready and we have timed our changes. The singing hasn't quite begun, but the fat lady's practising the scales.
The more I practice the play, the better I get at it and the deeper I get to know my characters. Just the same as writing really. The more time I spend with my fictional characters, the better I know them and the easier it becomes to write for them.
And with that pearl of wisdom I'm off to bed. See you on Wednesday.
