This extraordinary one-act drama deftly explores the evolution of the centuries-old vampire myth.

One week into rehearsal, we open two weeks from Tuesday. Remarkable how much we could get done in only four nights of work - and me, with three grants due tomorrow. Watching Dusten shift gears from sunny cluelessness in the first arc to bullhead indignation and self-righteous posturing in the second is great fun. Emily I know less well but I have been impressed by her sense of humor onstage in other productions and have been surprised at how meticulous she is in rehearsal - I suppose I shouldn't have been. She gets to play three parts in the first two scenes, Dusten only has to play one part at a time.

And me. Jesus. I have written myself some ridiculously turgid passages. What I need right now is time to memorize my own words.

The way Andrew tears through this is amazing, the hours fly by. I can't wait to see where we are this time next week.
