Day one of our madly short rehearsal period. We read through it sitting on sofas, and mostly on the floor, of the composer’s flat, trying to remember what heightened RP sounds like. We had lunch. We went to the park to run around after eachother (we were working on the lovers scenes) and attempt to retain an iambic pulse. We learnt an Andrews Sisters style acapella lullaby and discussed what kind of voices the fairies would have…given that they’re puppets. Haven’t quite solved that yet – will have to see what the puppets are like (my production assistant has been beavering away on them today). A good day.
