Play festivals are alot of work. We're doing 20 plays by 20 writers next week and we just had a marathon rehearsal today and wow - tired! Although I am always tired after a directing session - concentrating so hard for hours will wear you out - and I can just imagine how rough it is for the actors. Luckily I found a very good stage manager and that makes things flow much more smoothly than otherwise.
Hopefully it will all be worth it - the lineup of plays is here.
