This isn’t really a post as such — it’s an invitation to comment. I would love to hear from theatre practitioners, actors as well as directors, and perhaps even playwrights: what does rehearsal mean to you? What do you see as its purpose? What makes for a good rehearsal? What for a bad or unproductive one? Are rehearsals about process or about outcomes? How much do you learn about yourselves? About your characters? About the play? (Is one of those more important than the others?) Are rehearsals overrated? Do you sometimes feel underrehearsed? Overrehearsed? How does either feeling manifest itself? Do you have particularly interesting — funny? horrifying? illuminating? — rehearsal anecdotes you want to share?
