Some more thoughts on writing script

So here's an odd thing. I'm acting in Crowskin, (plug! week 2, Capital Centre, free tickets!) as well as one of the writers for it, and the other day we were rehearsing a scene which I have both written and act in (in fact I got to write almost all of my parts). What is odd though is that, coming to act the scene, I'm doing things with the character I never imagined I would do with him - that I never imagined anyone would think to do with him.

The scene is one which I wasn't happy with immediately after I'd written it. Having acted it and seen what can be done with it I'm much more content. Some things still niggle (I think the geek content might be a bit much, and I'm worried that I've treated one very serious topic with too much levity). But seeing speeches come to life in a way I hadn't imagined is gratifying and also suggests that there is a spark of life in them.

Not to mention seeing it in the context of other actors. The Crowskin team is excellent across the board, and having absolutely no control over how they treat certain parts is showing me (teaching me) where I've been too prescriptive with a line, and where I've gotten it right.
