Farnsworth Chronicles, 11
We slammed through the play this afternoon, using a sparse collection of chairs, makeshift tables, and a whole bunch of scrap paper for the stock market scene that begins act two. Many of the actual furniture pieces were being painted by set designer Jennifer Goodman, recently arrived from Stratford, Ontario where she works as a designer's assistant with that community's famous Shakespeare Festival. In the original schedule we were supposed to be dark today, but airline issues forced some last minute changes, which required some flexibility on the part of the ensemble in having to make due with whatever could be found to facilitate the run through.

I've often described great theatre productions as being many hearts beating as one. It's nice to be one of the hearts for a change, an honour.
