Children of a Lesser God is a really hard show. Not only do I have to learn my lines, but I have to learn them in sign language as well. Plus, Dawn never speaks, so I don’t have those cues to work off of, I have to be able to read her sign language to get the cue for my next line. And did I mention that the play takes place in the mind of my character? Meaning, I never leave the stage! The only time I’m not on the stage is during intermission. If the lights are up, I’m out there. But this will happen in Jesus’ name! Things feel like they are going by so fast, but I’m enjoying it the best I can.
Ann-Marie, Jessica, Tracey, and Vince and I watched The Land Before Time together last night. We assigned each of us one of the five main dinosaurs and we all had to say the lines as our character’s were saying them. I was Littlefoot and Vince was Spike, the girls were the rest and man, we laughed the entire time.
It’s so great to have friends.
