Duncan said it’s the first time she’s directed a full-length play, but her cast has made it easy on her.
The cast members, especially the women, mesh really well together. And none of them really knew each other before the production started.
“It’s been a perfect match,” she said.
The only struggle through this production has been the weather, Duncan said. The bitter cold temperatures forced the group out of its rehearsal studio. High heating costs left the building too cold.
So they’ve been traveling to different cast members’ houses to rehearse.
“I feel like a gypsy group,” Duncan said.
On top of that, multiple rehearsals had to be canceled because of the snow.
Carter said that means she will likely get little to no sleep the week of the performances. It’s ok, though, she said.
She’s just happy to be performing again. It’s the first time in years that she’s acted in a production.
“I’m excited to get back on stage,” she said. “I missed it.”
