Whispers from the Wings

'I'm very confused'

March 26, 2013

Rose ReynoldsStephen Boxer has just said 'willy' inches from my face. I know what he meant, he meant 'lily' but suddenly our demographic has changed…

Titus Andronicus is known for being Shakespeare's most gruesome play with scenes of incredible torment and grief… but I can't stop giggling.

You know when you find yourself in these types of situations - you tell yourself now is not time; here laughing is most definitely inappropriate but by the time you've told yourself that it's already too late.

They say in the heights of hysteria, a place we visit quite a lot in the play, you can laugh and cry simultaneously but, see, even this to me sounds like some horrifically low-budget, David Lynch commissioned holiday resort where everyone knows your name…

We're putting Titus on its feet this week and I cannot stop laughing. Katy Stephens has me in a headlock and I don't know whether it's because it's part of the scene or because she's trying to make me stop.
