Comedy of Errors first rehearsal

Yesterday I met up with the cast of Comedy of Errors to do some headshots, and then later in the day to snap a few photos from their first rehearsal. The first set of photos have very little to do with the actual play, but perhaps that comes as no big surprise.

We did the headshots in the Larkum studio as there was better light there.

I am hoping to photograph one more of their rehearsals before I have to fly back to Stockholm at the end of the month. Curious to see what it looks like when they have worked everything out and got their costumes. Many thanks for a fun afternoon!
