Another full house. It is so astounding the difference that a day makes, in a performance. The first week a play is like a musical instrument that tunes itself with the help of the audience. There was a post-show discussion last night, and I asked through a show of hands, how many people had heard the ultra-high frequency emitted as the teenagers go past the Mosquito anti-loitering device. About a third did. It works! The audience is split in two by their age and experience. Some go one way and some go the other.
The performances were great again. But I still can't concentrate when the actors are waiving about the scalpel. It is so sharp, it has to be locked in the weapons cupboard at the Theatre. Tonight it will be remade in less deadly style. Hopefully it will help the audience concentrate on the words. It does add a dash of danger though...audiences love a bit of danger.
