Goodbye 2013 – Fionnuala’s Blog

It is the end of a productive few months of work on the Strindberg Project. We have said our goodbyes for Christmas but are excited to let rip in Rathmines in a few weeks time.

Tucked away in the office, Maeve and I spent the last week making preparations with the production team for January’s Work in Progress showing and also doing a lot of final script work. There was editing, axing, transcribing and writing, along with some belting of Christmas songs to keep us in good spirits.

It was a week of long hours and hard work but also full of productivity and fun. We managed to get a lot done in a short number of days and I think we were both proud of what we had achieved by the end of the week. GO TEAM!

On Friday, we had a Christmas themed script read-through to celebrate the end of the year and to give everyone involved in the project the chance to check in with each other before the holidays.

We were a little bit excited about decorating the office…

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT FOR EVERYONE!

Mulled wine, minced pies, fairy lights, tacky tinsel and cheesy Christmas tunes. Throw some scripts into the mix along with a group of great people and the result is a very delightful afternoon.

Sitting around a table with actors reading the script we had been working on all week made everything feel a little bit more real. This is happening.

We have been working on the Strindberg Project for a few months now and I can’t wait to see how things unfold in the New Year. There is a real sense that anything can happen, that everything is there to be experimented with and played with. I am very excited to be a part of that process and to see where the journey takes us.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
