Yesterday morning the cast set off early on the train to Edinburgh for our first rehearsal in the Edinburgh Academy. Even though the majority of the cast have performed in the venue before, there was still a slight challenge in (re)familiarising ourselves with the space and adapting the blocking and positioning. The show opens in one week and we still have several days in the venue before then to tidy up the blocking and, of course, have our dress rehearsal.
The set was gradually being built around us as the day went on. As it did we began to see what Amanda had described to us taking shape. It should be fully constructed by the time we return to Edinburgh next Monday.
