A pretty decent scene concocted during rehearsal.
If anyone wants to post feedback on what they thought worked or didn't work, leave a comment at the end of the post!!
Personally, I like this scene!
One of the problems that I observed is that we do a lot of talking over each other, and most of the time that was combined with yelling! It really almost works - and in some places I think it is very effective cause it makes sense for our characters to be doing that but I don't think we make it deliberate enough every time it happens. If we are all shouting it needs to be a huge cacophony so that words can't be made out at all and it looks like we are just freaking out because we are idiots. In some places a couple of us are shouting and others are kind of talking so it just seems disjointed. I think if we can all pick up on characteristics like that and apply them in a scene we can avoid the confusion of whether or not it was deliberate.
Otherwise! We just need to more listen more carefully and make sure that we are giving everyone room to say their piece. It's a difficult thing to do with 5 people on stage at once, but whateva!
I thought we had developed a pretty good beginning middle and end though. A lot of times we have trouble resolving the situations we create, but I think this time we were actually able to find a resolution that made sense and happened in a reasonable amount of time.
applesauce is hysterical.
