Backstage Twelfth Night: Henry on Sebastian/Sir Andrew Aguecheek

“I’ve done a few shows where I’ve done multi roles. None have been as challenging as this one in making sure I give enough of a contrast between Sebastian and Sir Andrew without giving a contrived account of the characters. The biggest challenge for the cast as a whole is knowing where the heck the church is in relation to the rehearsal space. Vik assures us that come tech we would know. We’re not so sure. But the most challenging thing for me is remembering that I actually have lines in the Malvolio gulling scene. Will I remember come opening night? As it stands, it’s 50/50.”
