Ruined Actors Blog: Adrian Roberts

by:  Adrian Roberts at 11/02/2010

Ruined is currently in rehearsals at La Jolla Playhouse and will come to the Huntington in Boston. Actor Adrian Roberts offers an inside look at the process.

Greetings from the Congo,

We have been in rehearsal now for two weeks. It has been both inspiring and challenging. The cast and stage management staff have immersed ourselves in the world of this play. From doing choreography with Randy Duncan to dialect work with Robert Barry Fleming, we have begun forming our piece. The work has been fantastic and everyone is digging deep, but we have just begun to scratch the tip of the iceberg. Liesl [Tommy, the director] has created an environment that is both challenging and fun to explore and play in. Again, I cannot stress enough, by doing this kind of work and living in the culture, I am struck by how we are all connected. This story belongs to everybody. Until next time.

Best regards,
Adrian, November 2, 2010
