About: The challenge of performing outdoors is clarity. But there is a freedom there. In this production one of the characters I’m playing is, “Quickly”, traditionally, “Mistress Quickly”, in a unique edit of three plays. I have no idea what that edit or character will be for me (and you!) as I type this. But I am very excited by the challenge and the journey I will take with the director and cast. Also, what brand of bug spray I’ll be using. And sunscreen.
