‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ – The Mission
This morning, Jude took the main actors aside for one-to-ones in which she discussed their roles with them.
The company went through half the play this afternoon, doing a kind of rough ‘run’. Jude oversaw this and the developments were very interesting.
I spoke with Joan, who had been involved in TEMBA THEATRE and we realised we’d both done work at the KLCA. Joan, amazingly, performed in MOTHER POEM at the KLCA the week after I did THE CHINESE PLAY there and remembered my name from the programme!
I later spent some time chatting with Reece who explained to me that even though most of the cast were new to the play, he and Jude had been discussing it regularly since the end of November.
Jude then took time to chat to me, which was very kind. She told me I could come into the Theatre at any time I desired and use the place as my own. She gave me computer codes for the doors to the Green Room, the Rehearsal Room, the Admin Offices, etc.
