“Rosalind is one of the most complex human beings I have ever encountered. There’s not one moment that isn’t complicated, that you are grappling with psychologically, grappling with spiritually, grappling with emotionally, physically, demanding because of that space.”
In her second interview Michelle talks through the rest of the rehearsal period, getting to grips with the play in tech and previews, and the complex nature of Rosalind.
“They get packed together, Rosalind and Celia. You can’t really say one name without the other. There’s the obvious stuff about the banished father, but there’s something uneasy with this relationship as well, there is something already fractured.”
In her first interview, Michelle talks about the uneasy relationship between Rosalind and Celia, first impressions of the play and returning to the Globe.
