Living in the World of SHE KILLS MONSTERS

We’re well into our first week of rehearsals in the spacious Plaza Theatre at the Boston Center for the Arts. This first week of rehearsal is all about building vocabulary: stage combat terminology and basic moves; a thorough understanding of the script and all its references; and an immersion into both the fantasy and real-world settings of the play. Director Shira Milikowsky assigned the actors a series of tasks to flesh out characters and the world of the play.

The first assignment was for each actor to bring in three objects/images that encapsulate the world of the play. Take a look at our collection!
