âRehearsal of a Cross-Dressing Stepfather' is an attempt to represent the behaviour of a fascinatingly dysfunctional, but real person through the body of an actor. Using scripts based on recorded monologues about how many meals you can serve from a single goose from Aldi or the scandalous price and unreliability of generators, an actor, a director and a first-hand witness will explore the manner and mien of a penny-pinching, a-social, dress-wearing stepfather.
Writer and stepdaughter Sally O'Reilly will attempt to convey the particularities of the man in question to theatre director Zoe Pepper, who will then transform this into a performance, shaping the actor, Shaun French, to best embody his idiosyncratic ways.
