Saturday morning rehearsal. The magnificent Diana procured bagels, and the magnificent Anne brought fresh fruit! No doughnuts for this crew. I even brought some decent coffee.
Fragile objects. Oh dear. If there is one thing I have learned about the outreach tour, it's that we break things. However, items like these are never made out of rubber. We must be careful.
I do love fiddling with them, though. It's all right, it's in the script.
Accents include: Received, Cockney, North Country, Belgian, Serbian, and one which would be a spoiler if I mentioned it.
Today we ran through a good twenty pages, again with the doors, sardines, porcelain knick-knacks, tweezers, despatch cases, coffee cups, and imaginary dirt, stains and candle wax. Esther stopped in at the end of rehearsal and we were able to get a lot of information about what to expect by Monday, and to make additional requests. I must start working with the padding, and know where everything goes in all of my numerous pockets (small evidence envelopes, sample tubes, forceps, etc.)
