Directing, Zombie Shakespeare, Blank Verse, and the Double Play Party

The work of a director can be summed up in two very simple words. Why and How. – Peter Brook

I spent the bulk of the weekend directng a few scenes for a new web series called Blank Verse. Claire Hesselgrave, who will play Diwata in Speech & Debate this October, performs in the show too. It  features the design work of Carolyn Rapanos, who did great scenic painting for The Bomb-itty of Errors in 2012. Check out the trailer here.

Rehearsals are in sight for Speech & Debate. I suppose it’s no surprise that a director should enjoy rehearsing, but it really does excite me every time I start work on a new project. We’ve elected to rehearse part-time overt he course of four weeks, a process I prefer to working full-time for two weeks.


Remember to join us at the Double Play Party at Little Moutain Gallery on August 31. We’re going to get you sauced up on our cheap bar, then unleash you on a dance floor that will time warp consistently to the 1990s.
