Prior to our read-through of The Tragedy of Thomas Merry at the weekend, the cast spent two hours reading, rehearsing and staging mini-scenes from other domestic tragedies: Arden of Faversham, A Warning for Fair Women, A Woman Killed with Kindness, Two Lamentable Tragedies, A Yorkshire Tragedy and Romeo and Juliet. Working from cue-scripts, they experienced a miniature version of the intensive fortnight-long rehearsal process for Merry: a read-through of their scenes, intensive work on their cue-scripts, line-learning, a single group rehearsal, and performance. This video captures dramatic, funny and memorable moments from this process. I hope you enjoy it!
