In her London apartment this week, I worked with her and Sophie Stone, transforming written text from my new play Woman of Flowers into flowing, beautiful visual language.

The Director's Blog

second week of Stardust

So we are off and happening. Every day we start with keepy uppy, ( trying to get over 100 each day), and then we do the fight sequences and the songs. The aim for the week is to go through all of the play detailing as we go ready for a run on Friday afternoon. The real Charmed is now in the room and so we are finding out what he can do- he is much smaller and lighter than the rehearsal puppet and so can fit on Zac's boot rather well as he gets carried to a box! The height difference is much more prounounced as well- lots of fun. Mr Bromius is also showing a more caring side for Tristran which has been interesting to play with and we are now working on the meeting of the 2 witches. This afternoon the actors will be trying on some of their costumes and talking through their quick changes. Lots to do- time is ticking......oh and Clive the unicorn is working out very well....
