So yes, Twelfth Night has opened. My first Shakespeare role and my first SRT Shakespeare in the Park show has opened. It’s been quite the journey and a wonderfully expanding one. Yes, it wasn’t easy but change – learning a new body, new language, new words – isn’t going to be a walk in the park. For that, I am most grateful to our director Bruce Guthrie for his patience and his immortal words: nothing is as important as what you are about to say.
It’s by far one of the most physically taxing shows I’ve been in…because it’s uncomfortably hot to be outdoors during May in tropical Singapore, let alone acting in period costume (1930s suits). Plus a rake that’s quite steep…phewie. Nonetheless, it’s been a real fun experience, we have a freakin’ 2 storey house on stage, and a yacht!
Do come if you can, we’ve been getting really good responses, and also it’s perfect for picnicking and enjoying the night sky. Ticketing information can be found here.
