Every Picture Tells A Story

I love rehearsing. It’s probably my favourite way to spend my time, which is lucky as it’s a huge part of my job! I love the focus a really good company has in rehearsal and how everyday issues melt away in the challenge and fun of exploring a text or devising a show – discovering the best way to tell stories.

I’ve been very fortunate with my last (ELART Productions’ All the World’s A Stage – Shakespeare/Rucastle) and current show (The Rose Company’s Iphigenia – Lady Jane Lumley) to have 2 willing – and able – photographers to capture some rehearsal moments. Do take a look:

The Rose’s Company’s Iphigenia happens in 9 days from now, so lots more rehearsal hours beckon.
