Tonight in class with Christinna Chauncey I was given a gem of a scene from a drama called “The Dead Zone”. We have been working on comedy for weeks, which I love, but it was nice to work on such a well written drama. The character: Sarah Bannerman, a woman who just found out that Johnny, the love of her life who has been in a coma for 6 years, is now awake. Thinking he would never wake, Sarah has recently moved on with her life. In this scene, she is visiting Johnny at the hospital.
Next week I will return to class for the “call back”, using the same scene, dressed appropriately for the character.
