It's a curious thing having a character written with the actor in mind. It's very much about perception--the writer's perception of the actor, the actor's self-perception, and then the three different views on the character (writer/director/actor). It's also like walking into a pick-up flag football game, or wandering into a jam session on open mic night in Burlington, VT. Everyone comes from a different background, a different school, speaking a different language, and you slowly, with grunts and gestures, develop a new hybrid language.
Being a part of a larger community also growing and challenging each other in the same way has been particularly fortifying. It has been a joy to watch the other plays develop.
