j’étais dans une pièce
Old news! Finally!
So, for those of you who don’t know, I was in a play. It took place last Monday and Tuesday, and I was the “premier personnage!” (main character!) The play was called RETOUR (there is the poster, above,) and my character, Manon, was a sort of “damsel in distress” – her exboyfriend, who she hadn’t seen in over a year after he left her without warning, returns during a small rendez-vous with her best friends when she is about to tell them big news (clue – it has to do with going to Australia…hence the Kangaroo). They play was entirely in French, and lasted a little over an hour. And it went well! I successfully learned and remembered all of my lines – and even did a bit of acting! Manon had to be very angry throughout the play, which was interesting for me – because, as many of you probably know, I’m not typically an angry person. I also got to faint! That was fun. Anyway, I will have a copy on dvd, so for those of you who would like to watch it at some point, let me know!
All in all, I am happy it’s over though. It involved 2-3 hour rehearsals every night, and well, I’m not used to that. But it was a really fun experience, and I think it helped me improve my speaking, and especially my pronunciation.
