Second Rehearsal; Table Work

“Acting is living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” — Meisner

Today we start (arguably) the best part of the rehearsal process; table work. Today we get to stretch and flex our muscles of imagination.

Today we get to flesh out our character relationships. Today we begin to build up details. Today we find the softer moments, the undercurrents of desperation, our troubled past, our uncertain present and how they collide honesty and truthfully.

…and today we begin building, brick by brick, a beautiful world of imaginary circumstances.
