Last night,_ the cast and part of the crew met for the first time to have a read-through of Al’Ukhraa.
There is always much apprehension and excitement around those first moments, where you are asked to make choices on the line and just hope Shakespeare is not turning in his grave.
I was impressed by the capacity of my fellow actresses to make a clear distinction between the numerous characters they have to work on.
It is so tricky to get a full picture during these first moments. I always end up leaving the rehearsal space with a picture of an incredible mountain to climb in mind – but I know for sure it is gonna be a heck of a ride.
