We spent most of our time on 1.6: Iachimo’s meeting with (and attempted seduction of) Imogen. Both Christopher (Iachimo) and Patrick (Imogen) are doing well with their lines.

People who end up in prison are often well-practiced in hiding their intentions – not only from others, but also from themselves. Acting Shakespeare requires a clarity, focus, and forcefulness that runs against this grain.
