Pygmalion

Now that I'm back among the living, my agent got me some stage work. I'm going to be Clara Eynsford-Hill in Shaw's play.

Who? No, she's not the most important character. She's not even in the movie. But in the play, she's Freddy's sister and Eliza's opposite, in many ways. It's a small part, but one I'm not at all familiar with, so it will be a nice challenge.

I've played a few different characters in a few different productions of My Fair Lady, but that's very different from the play. Especially the ending and all the songs.

Even though it's a small part, I have a lot of work to do. I know the story, but the character is completely new to me. I understand her purpose in the play, but I have to figure out what I'm going to do with her.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
