So many different types of blood necessary for this play. Blood that can spray across the face in watery streaks. Blood that can sit visible on the stage floor in thick, fat drops. Blood that can be safely ingested. Blood hidden in capsules in the mouth, sponges inside handkerchiefs, tubes inside props. Every night I see the crew mixing blood, pouring it into spray bottles, injecting it into props via syringe. Every night they have to mop the stage floor of it. I have to shampoo it out of my beard.
This is so far from The Odd Couple. Curtain goes up tonight.
