Rehearsals week 1.

We have just finished our first week of rehearsals for Becoming Mohammed. As a director I am over the moon with our brilliant cast, who have delved head first into character work and started unravelling the scenes. Our creative team is on the roll with designs for set, costume, light and sound – it is a real privilege to see this all starting to come together after only one week of work.
Our writer, Claudia Marinaro, brought us a visit with her camera and shot some nice pictures of our 3rd rehearsal day which included exercises on the world of the play and character development improvisations.
I’m happy to share this process with you, and please keep your eye on this page for more to follow!

Meanwhile, the final show is best enjoyed live 😉
