Phewffff I have so much to catch you up on! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut for now, another quick monologue will have to do.
Last week was very As You Like It centric (perhaps more on that later), so I thought it would be fitting to close the week with Phebe, the proud shepherdess. Normally, Phebe spends her days being followed around the forest of Arden by Silvius who, like a puppy, dotes on her. Phebe finds Silvius’s love to be most irritating and takes some pleasure in repeatedly rejecting him. On this particular day, Phebe meets Rosalind disguised as the youth Ganymede and, to Silvius’s dismay, falls in love at first sight. This is only natural since Ganymede is a huge asshole and treats her appallingly.
In this speech, Phebe tries to convince Silvius (and herself) that she is not in love with Ganymede despite being able to obsessively describe the minutia of ‘his’ being.
Okay, I’m offskie to try and make the most of this bank holiday Monday… including roping B into reading lines for another self tape audition I’ve got to submit heh heh heh!
I hope you all had happy and productive weekends?
