Macbeth rehearsals are just about to enter their second phase, the first being a series of "chunks" of around 10 pages a rehearsal where we worked on the text and blocking quite closely, and which finished with the first fight choreography session (great fun!). The second phase is going to be running quarters, then on to halves and then ultimately full runs. Hopefully everyone will remember what they're meant to be doing!
I have also finalised the programme and poster artwork for The Weir and The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged) for Arena, and also done the programme for Regent Rep's An Inspector Calls and a poster for Brockenhurst College's production of Rent.
Blimey, when I look back at the last couple of months I'm amazed how much I managed to fit in, especially when programme work for Regent Rep includes writing everything bar the biogs for the actors (and even then, half the time I do that for them too) - production notes, director's notes, the whole nine yards. Oh yes, I don't just put the supplied content together prettily you know! Arena always supply me director's notes, which helps, but then with a brand new rest-of-season announced for 2014, I have also had to mock up workable posters for DNA, The River and Collaborators to use in the forthcoming productions page. I can't even think about The History Boys yet! Yep, value for money, that's Rare Gravy. Er. if there was any money changing hands for this stuff, anyway. I did get free tickets for Regent Rep but was unable to go, and a discounted ticket for Arena seems rather small return for the several hours worth of work I do for each poster and programme set...perhaps I ought to start charging!
