Rehearsals for Edward II are coming along slowly but surely. We began blocking Margaret's wedding night. There is so much emotional turmoil in this particular scene, I felt a little overwhelmed holding my book and frantically accessing the physical movement of the scene in an unfamilar rehearsal space. We have a break in our rehearsal schedule, to which I will devote the majority of my time refocusing my character and memorizing my dialog. My text analysis work had prompted new discoveries about my character. I realized early on that Margaret must be a genuinely caring individual. She rarely talks about herself, except on her wedding night, when she is faced with a life-altering, tragic situation. When others speak of her they refer to her as sweet: "Sweet Margaret," "Sweet Niece," "Sweet Wife," and "Sweet Lady." She regards the Queen as her friend and confidant, and thinks of her before all things, until the doom of her wedding night approaches. She makes the majority of her entrances "quickly" or "rushing," "looks pale" adn through Gaveston has no intimate or logistical desire to be her husband, he believes she "she deserve(s) affection and regard". I am currently investigatng points of attack, I am very interested to know what will drive my Margaret through the course of her journey.
