We rehearsed 2.1 (Cloten expresses his frustration at losing a game of bowls, and learns of a stranger’s arrival at court (Iachimo)), and 2.2 (Iachimo emerges from the trunk in Imogen’s bedroom, or as I referred to it today: “the home invasion scene”).
2.1: Since we have combined the parts of the First and Second Lords, Jarkese is (gamely) working with the challenge of playing a two-faced character, at turns a sychophant and a heckler. We are working at helping Chris (Cloten) to express himself more dynamically.
2.2: Both Christopher (Iachimo) and Patrick (Imogen) are doing a great job of creating a very creepy scene. After the first run-through, Christopher said, “OK, here goes.” Then he removed his shirt. The second run-through was electric.
