Friday blog rescue

Yes, it’s a little more urgent this morning than the usual photo, but I’ll start with that: this is from our upcoming production of Lillian Hellman’s The Autumn Garden.

We’ve been in rehearsals for two weeks now, and it’s been months since my last visit to the blogosphere. I’m adding the dramaturgical research for The Autumn Garden and hoping to get back into the swing of regular posts, videos and photos in the coming days.

There’s a richness to this script that runs deeper than almost any play I’ve worked on – even the Hellman productions in 2000, which were filled with complex characters and intricate plots. As we’ve been exploring The Autumn Garden, we’ve found that every line gives a hint about the history and off-stage lives of the twelve characters who collide in a summer resort on the Gulf Coast in 1949.

We’re asking questions and filling in details now, and I’ll be back soon with updates from the process.
