Funny how the play you're rehearsing seeps into your psyche.
Lear is perhaps a love story about a father and daughter. A tragic love story. And everything Cordelia does is always about her father.
I went to a dinner party at my parents' house recently. And as our pre-dinner cocktail hour went on, I suddenly realized that I had hardly left my father's side. I found him next to me on the couch; standing at my side in conversation with groups of guests. And, of course, I was responsible for this continuous proximity.
I am so immersed in this thing, this story. We create such an intense connection to a specific world and people for 2 months. And then it will vanish.
What a bizarre career choice I've made.......for now.
