SO, I've just got back from an amazing cruise (where I was busy learning scripts!), and now I've plunged straight into rehearsals for Not That Kind of Girl which is on at the Blue Orange theatre next week (18th-21st October).
After running Act 1 twice today alongside my fellow actor (and writer of the piece), Mike Bower, I can honestly say that this piece is going to be exceptional. I'm LOVING the characters; the script is gripping and filled with lots of twists and turns, and we're really pushing ourselves to the limits with it. Rehearsals (all two days of them!) have been great fun, led by Kirsty Ford, who I've acted with before so it's been a nice reunion. Also, who knew she was such an exceptional director?! - really picking apart the characters and journey of the piece to bring out the nuances, which of course is SO important when there's just two of us onstage for the whole blooming thing !!
Help a girl out and book a ticket... you know you want to ;) I honestly am so excited to share this piece with y'all, so hopefully there'll be at least a few people in the audience!
Anyway, better get off and learn the rest of my lines :D
