Oh, for the Melancholy Tilly!
This past weekend I acted in a a production I could not be more proud of. Melancholy Play by Sarah Ruhl is the tale of Tilly. Tilly is sad and beautiful. Joan (me), Frances, Frank, and Lorenzo all fall hopelessly in love with Tilly. My girlfriend, Frances, gets so sad that she turns into an almond. Together we must bring Frances back to human form.
This play was so weird, so beautiful, so minimal, so creative, and so meaningful to me personally. A cellist accompanied the show. Joan was so complex and fun to be. It was refreshing to act in something so well directed, with talented actors, and a lovely script. 10/10 acting experience.
I can't wait to be a part of something this special again.
