The SQM Process

Trial Performances

The first performances of each play were creative adventures that demanded great courage and resourcefulness from the cast. They had never run the scenes together in sequence, nor had they performed any of the play in front of a live audience. Their lines were often only loosely lodged in their heads, and the basic principles of the blocking were only sketched out roughly. Actors had to improvise quick changes, and call for lines if necessary. The director Peter Cockett and members of the cast here discuss the experience of those first performances.
