Breaking The Barrier: From Collaborator To Soloist

Outside on the streets, masks were worn and people were keeping to different sides of the pavement and opposite sides of the road. If anyone entered a building or left anywhere the lower half of their face would be covered and often remain covered. The mid-spring sunshine was casting a sense of hope on the room that we entered for our first read-through. A grand place, painted blue and pale cream with a beautiful mantelpiece at one end and a stage that had been left untrod for over a year at the other. The members of the cast present had settled around several tables and masks had been removed. A babble of small talk was occurring throughout the room and as people entered in dribs and drabs, more chairs were set up and the gaps between each occupant diminished.
