On returning to nonprofessional theatre  
We had the first readthrough for 'The Complete Works of Wllm Shkspr (abridged)' last night. I offered my home for this purpose, as the space we will be performing in was unavailable. The director and his wife were there, as were Don, Steve and myself (the three actors).

Two pages in, the director started giving notes. Character notes. At a READTHROUGH.

I'd forgotten what community theatre was like! It will be fun, I don't doubt, but... I hope the director lightens up. We three know what we're doing, and honestly, we're all going to be playing and trying new things ALL THE TIME. He can't lock us into anything from the outset.
