Week 9 - All's fair in love and LOL.

This week was a good week. It was the beginning of something that has been a passion in my life for many a year. Since I was around 6 years old I have been involving drama and performance into my life, and it has stuck with me through the years. It was like a friend who has stayed with me as I have slowly grown through the world, and it has shaped me into who I am. When I started learning Math, it was all like "Hey man, that's not cool! Those are numbers man, and they ain't rad!" For some strange reason it seemed to talk in the stylings of a 1950's Teddy Boy. This is what you get after seeing West Side Story on TV. Anyway, the point is that it's been a major part in my life, and seemed to consume the greater part of my education. This is not to say that it blocked out the glaring light of all my other subjects, they just seemed dimmed in the 100 watt glory that was drama. I still had passions for literature, and to me the two subjects seemed to go hand in hand. It's not like you can say Shakespeare was a dramatist, as his plays were a series of sonnets, carefully placed and practiced, they moved audiences to tears, yet it took the delivery of the actors to truly drive his words home.

A friend and I had picked to do Woody Allen's play, Death Knocks. I was thrilled about this, I mean come on, Woody Allen? That guys hilarious! As I was reading through the play in the book, I had to stop every now and then to catch my breath and promptly roll about the floor in laughter. I'd sue him for splitting my sides, but I'd fear it'd stop him writing great works! Either way I knew I was going to have fun playing this, and immediately knew I wanted to go after the character of Death. It was a comical character, my favourite, plus I'm sure I could put him in all sorts of fancy outfits. All in all, I'm excited. It should go good, I'm in a good group, we get along and should be able to pull this off effortlessly! I mean c'mon, it's Woody Allen!

                                                                                          Look at this guy! He's a laugh a minute!

So yeah. I'm looking forward to it, it looks like a bundle o' laughs!
