First Assignments

The winter holidays always make a mess out of everybody's schedule, and it's damn near impossible to schedule anything with a group of people until they're over. Therefore, Killing Game rehearsals won't begin in earnest until the second week of January.

In the meantime, each actor has been asked to take a scene or part of a scene (as long or as short as they want) from the original script and prepare it to be performed during one of the first rehearsals after the break. The cast has been given just four guidelines for these pieces:
1) the scene must be performed to music.
2) it must be interesting.
3) they must work with a partner. Each cast member has been urged to consider non-human and/or inanimate partners.
4) gender lines should be ignored and/or willfully crossed.

The results of these compositions will be used to generate even more ideas for the play.
