Friday 19th

Today we concentrated on what is in my opinion one of the mos problematic characters, that of the Young Spectator. She seems to be a collection of ideas rather than a character. This of course is very interesting to study but very difficult to act to an audience. After discussing the character with David Johnston we came up with the idea of the Young Spectator as a post modern mirror. A character who passes judgement on the Director's ideas and Lorca's ideas. This would be a character without a defined sexuality or religion which would allow her to make these grandiose points about society and sexuality. We also considered whether she had some relaitionship with the Director, not necessarily sexual but perhaps they are united by a similar set of beliefs. She could be the Director's psyche, sitting remived from the action on stage reviewing it objectively. There is a definite sense that this character is asking the same questions as the Director but for different reasons.
