Rehearsals are in full swing for The Beauty Queen of Leenane and this is the first time I’ve been inescapably compelled to write about the process. Although we met a couple of time before the holidays, the true work didn’t really begin until the first week of January. We spent the first week rough blocking, and last week the actors dropped their books for the first time. Now is the time when co-director Jonni Pera and I really dig in and have some fun refining the scenes.
