The setting was set. Tea, bikkies, milk, sugar, apples, nuts, and scripts to chew over. Some ambience-producing music echoing around a hot empty hall. Too hot. Queensland hot. Moved outside. Waiting, waiting, waiting. No phone calls from interested prospective actors. That’s a worry. I waited outside the hall shifting locations following the shade, reading my own scripts, waiting. The phone rings. It’s the drama student. “She can’t make it” I think, rather too pessimistically. “Hello, yes sorry, which hall?” she asks. “Opposite the school” I reply with renewed hope welling up into my vioce. “OK we’ll be there in about 20 minutes”. And they were. But we could coax the BF to come in and help, so it was an awkward duet of an old guy and a young girl shifting around looking for the coolest place to read. But we read. She was enthusiastic, raw, also hopeful. We talked. The session ended after a couple of hours with a mutual declaration to meet again during the week and an offer from the young ‘thing’ to round up some actor friends for the next reading. Outcome: Positive but not perfect.
