Today, the director (T) and the writer (L), set up a lunch meeting with me and the designers to talk about what the show might look like. Everything is so up in the air at the moment though, that it turned into more of a look at what working with this crazy bunch is going to be like.
The theses writers:
L: No, I definitely want a linear narrative.T: It could have time travel!
This very accurately sums up both of these gals.
Can you make an audience play spin the bottle? Can you make your actors play spin the bottle? Before every rehearsal? The point was then brought up that if you share germs early, then they hopefully won’t get sick closer to the performance.
I stopped taking notes way before they stopped talking.
