This is day four, i think.
It is strange to think that of all the plays I have written, and all the relationships I have tried to dramatise, this is the first time I have tried to do anything so banal as create as family.

The results don't look banal at all, however:as the actors begin to take the first steps of becoming their characters and creating the relationships between them, the family comes to life with a vividness i find miraculous and uncanny.

I can obviously do this. And as far as I can tell, we are creating a set of relationships that seems utterly plausible, 'true to life', as they say, and that everyone watching will find it very easy to relate to.

yet I have never done this before. Instead, it is as if I have gone out of my way to make life difficult for myself. To make failure a more likely outcome than success.

How strange we are...
