As You Like It: Day 2

After completing the second day of rehearsals I definitely feel like we’ve embarked on something exciting! The cast took a quick opportunity this morning to test themselves on the BSL alphabet, all in the spirit of Deaf Awareness Week. Then it was on to script work, character development, devising physical sequences, music, blocking and integrating audio description and BSL. To top it all off, the lovely Becky (our designer) brought in our costumes for a fitting, without giving anything away there’s not a Elizabethan ruff in sight.

It is such a treat to be a part of discussions about the meaning and interpretation of the text, it aids the BSL translation and embeds access from the start. I feel very privileged.
