During our last two days of rehearsal at Towson University, we were joined by Rebecca Eastman (Costume Designer), Iaeden Hovorka (Sound Designer) and Michael Vandercook (Creative Technical Consultant) to begin technical discussions.

After nearly a year of research and asking questions of the play on our own, these new voices gave clarity and

After we ran through the show, the team settled in for a production meeting. Ideas gelled and, as has happened so often during this process, the whole team arrived very much on the same page. Questions were answered before they were asked and a general air of excitement and anticipation filled the air as the ideas began to take form and the concept of Machine Gunner began to become a reality.

After several hours, the team adjourned to take in a ball game between the Baltimore Orioles and Detroit Tigers.
