Sweeties

This show makes me hungry.  I can’t stop eyeing up the set. Glittering heaps of chocolate and sweets, giant bars of Bourneville and Dairy Milk, beautifully stacked drinks cans that look as though they’re as cold as ice (although you wouldn’t know the cans are empty and the fridge hasn’t been used in so long it literally stinks!).  It’s really all so tempting.

It's been hard work, eating all those chocolates for the sweet shop.

Yum!

Today, rehearsals indicated that we’ve got sound issues.  Noise from each of the simultaneously running scenes at times bleeds into the neighbouring scenes.  Whilst some sound does in fact compliment what’s happening in the next scene quite brilliantly (Julia’s melodica creeps effectively into the eerie story of Mama’s Hard Foods), it has today proved to be distracting during some moments – particularly during the quiet and reflective scene that takes place in a dining room of different decades.    I have a feeling Rob, Johnny and the rest of the design team will have some sound proofing tricks up their sleeves.

Aside from the noise issues, it has felt like a great rehearsal today.   The more we run the show in the space the more the energy builds.   The performance is flowing, our momentum is building and the prospect of opening night on Friday is feeling really exciting.
