Performances

"The first time I walked out, 1500 faces just staring back at you. You really have to [take it in] and sit on it, "This is cool, this is normal, it's fine!" So the first few previews were very much a kind of acclimatising to the space..."

With performances well underway for The Winter's Tale, Zora shares how audience reactions and interactions have developed, and looks back on what it was like to step out on that stage for the first time.

Rehearsals

"Cleomenes just comes to me as a trip adviser! These local guides like really geeky and they review the post office! He's like that. But obviously this is much bigger than that, it's so much bigger. But he's so detailed."

As Zora starts to navigate the process of the play, she shares with us her discoveries about the characters she plays.
