The Beginning

January 27, 2013 in 2013 Henry V

After the casting announcements were made, the troupe met just before Christmas for their over-the-holidays assignment.

Each actor needed to mark out the metre for their poetry lines and then to translate their parts into modern English.

At our first meeting in January, the actors read through their modern English lines. Many of the actors had used modern day slang and the read through was most enjoyable.

This past week, we had our first complete read through in the original Shakespearean. It took just over an hour, well with in our time range.
