Lesson 1

I am sure there will be many lessons I will learn this summer. But the first lesson I have learnt is that rehearsing outdoors + bright sunny days = sun burnt face. Factor 50 tomorrow, I promise. I really don't think the weathered tomato look suits a play such as Pride and Prejudice.

Despite feeling a little ill, rehearsals are going well. At the moment we are just trying to find the truth behind the words. It is easy for the dialogue to sound mannered and put on. Of course the emotions shown are restraint within this social class but they are still bubbling away under the surface.

Time for some line learning and Aloe Vera application methinks...
