The ADVENTURE one I find quite apropos as you all are embarking on rehearsals that specifically explore adventure. And think of any plot… how boring would a play be if everything simply went right for the characters? Same thing for you in rehearsal. Rehearsal is the place to risk, to look silly, to fall on your face, to embrace every opportunity to do it “wrong” so that you are one step closer to finding a glorious and effective way to wallop the audience with a choice or emotion. Don’t come in to rehearsal hoping to just get it “right” right away. Don’t be content with just the first, easiest, or even an early cool option. Go on the adventure. The O’Connor quote vibrates in a similar way. Use rehearsal to explore and figure out the character, story, and emotions. You won’t know what to do until you experiment and dive deep and try it and try it and try it again. You won’t know what you’re REALLY trying to say until you hear yourself say it. This is actually the essence of humility and artistry: to honor the work in yourself, not yourself in the work.
