To cough up my favourite quote from Team America: "Watch out! She's going to act!"
I was so touched earlier, when a whole bunch of you said you'd totally come see my play if you lived in the same hemisphere as me, and then I thought, maybe I can do the next_best thing! So here are some photos from the first scene I'm in.
Here Warren, the main character, is showing off his collection of memorabilia to my character, Jessica. Jessica loves his Major Matt Mason toys, they remind her of the toys her cousins wouldn't let her borrow when she was little. She's not quite so impressed with his antique toaster, which Warren loves so much that he's given it a name. Toaster Amazing. Nerd, much?
They talk about all sorts of stuff, then Warren puts on a record, and they dance. Suddenly Warren asks, "Would you be terribly offended if I kissed you for a few seconds?" Flustered, Jessica replies, "Well no, but like, what's the rush?"
But this kiss has been in the cards all night, and they both know it. And sure enough...
...there will be smooching. Now, before you get too shocked, what with me being a married woman and all, let me assure you that the kissing is all fake. We sort of mash our open mouths together and make grunty noises. It's pretty convincing in person. The other actor in the group got so uncomfortable during one rehearsal that when we came up for air, we found him behind a pillar, covering his face and whimpering. We literally acted him into submission! Also, Victor has watched it, and he finds the whole think kind of funny. So there you go!
