Faust x2 Rehearsal Diary: Week One
21 February 2017
In her first week at The Watermill Theatre, Daisy Fairclough talks us through what the cast have been up to as they prepare for the world premiere of Faust x2.
The first week of rehearsals for Faust x2 has been extremely productive. For the first step of our journey, we began by going through the text, meticulously deciphering it and understanding its meanings and metaphors. Then we began working through the piece scene by scene to get an idea and feel of things, loose blocking and starting to build our world. We were able to get through the whole play by the end of the week, which is quite incredible.
Daisy Fairclough is playing Gretchen in Faust x2. Daisy was previously a member of the National Youth Theatre Rep Company. Her previous theatre credits include DNA, Pigeon and English (National Youth Theatre Rep Company). She can also be seen in the television production of The Strike Series and the film Just Charlie.
Faust x2 is a gripping story of lust, sacrifice and regret. Featuring innovative projection and a sparky original musical score, this contemporary retelling of the legend of Faust opens at The Watermill on Thursday 2 March and runs until Saturday 25 March.
