Last night we gathered for our first table read of the script.  We started the rehearsal by introducing ourselves, followed by a welcome speech by our director John Nasca.

After the table read, our dialect coach Jeremiah Davis gave us notes and helpful tips for taking on a South London accent, as well as a very helpful handout he had prepared.  I must say, Jeremiah really knows this dialect; he gave the cast some great notes and pointers.  We all are very excited to have Jeremiah working with us!

We had our first rehearsal at WTTW studios.

The best line of the night comes from John Nasca: “Put your diphthong away.”

I have some exciting news about an upcoming promotional event, but I can’t tell you until tomorrow. Until then, have a beautiful day!
