If you’re interested in joining us…

(This post is for men who have come here to see about joining Coriolanus.) Welcome! Here’s what you need to know about Coriolanus: Performances are Sat/Sun, Oct 25 & 26, mid-afternoon, in the Greenville Street Park in downtown Newnan. There is a single performance, Sat, Nov 1, in the evening, at the Newnan Community Theatre […]

Report: 8/27/08

Present: Dale, Marc, Dan, Jeff B. The problem of the day was the final scene: what does it mean and how do we stage it? Dale wanted to start with Coriolanus’ death, the hard part. We futzed around a bit, and then Dale shared a moment he wanted to steal from another production the review […]

Report: 8/23

Dale isolated the bit where the Citizens come in, breathless with […]

I definitely think we need campaign buttons for publicity, though.

Report: 8/16/08

First work session. In attendance: Dale, Marc, Galen, Jeff B., Greg, Dan, Kevin. (Jeff A. and Matthew were both working.) Dale taped up a sheet and drew a floorplan of the Greenville St Park performance area. The raised brick platform is about 40 feet across and basically 9 feet deep. There are stairs SL, and […]

Agenda for 8/16/08

We’ve got our first four hours upon us this Saturday. What shall we do? Discuss.


Back in the summer, I short-circuited the play-acting we were doing in The Art of Being Off-Task by claiming that I had found the answer to the problem. I coyly held out on the group till I was back in town, but I still want to hold back, in a way. What I found was […]
