We still haven't receieved the cargo crate from Stratford yet with our supplies, so everyone's a bit anxious. Time is ticking and I have 40 costumes to get made as well as props in less then two weeks. I believe the toughest days are still ahead.
On a lighter note, Ed our Director is committed to involvng several live animals in the production. This will include caged rabbits and at least one wild chicken tied to a young actors ankle. Our enthusiastic staff are insisting on as much naturalism in our myth as humanly possible...(in our made up myth?)....so they want to hand carve our agricultural tools and hand bead chest plates and accessories. The Theatre AD is auditioning human fireworks today for the parade after the launch. A local ex bomb-builder from the days of civil strife now makes his living as a fireworks expert who runs through crowds during parades entertaining the poeple with fireworks shooting off his back. The President of El. Salvador is visiting the city for a huge diplomatic luncheon tomorrow which means the army is coming in too. I tell you, it´s never a slow day in Suchitoto, and that you can quote me on! Signing off for now, with pepto in hand from the offices Es Artes, this is Sean the only gay in the village. xo
Things are never dull here to say the least. Now I'm off to have a nap. Wish my body luck in its quick recovery and I'll speak to you all soon, maybe even en espanol!
