I just checked, and it has been 20 days since I published a post whining about how light-headed and awful I felt. You have probably guessed I checked because that is what I feel like making a post about today.
I actually started to feel pretty crappy at rehearsal last night. I think I still got my lines mostly right. As rehearsal lasted longer than expected, as will sometimes happen, I began to say to some fellow cast members, “I’m never being in another play again.” I don’t think they believed me. Do you?
Time did not pass too slowly at work, for one blessing. I spent much of the day wanting to put my head down and rest, but I resisted the urge. The day was further enlivened by my reading of a play. I am looking for one to direct for Ilion Little Theatre. The play I was reading was VERY funny. I kept laughing out loud as I was reading. Then I would go back to work feeling unable to wait till I could read more.
“This is the funniest play that ever lived!” I enthused to Steven when I got home. No, I’m not going to tell you what the play is. For one reason, I don’t want to get anybody’s hopes up that we’re going to do it. For another reason, I don’t want any rival community theaters stealing it.
Incidentally, directing a play is NOT the same thing as being in one.
