Week #1: Mainstage Project + Character Challenge

Happy Saturday, friends. Welcome to EA’s Rehearsal Playground. Each week we’ll celebrate our Mainstage material and capture graveyard echoes emanating from EA’s Spoon River.

Paid members have a Mainstage Rehearsal Challenge + Weekly Character Challenge waiting beyond the paywall below!



Graveyard Echoes

excerpts of The Spoon River Anthology (Edgar Lee Masters)

The Unknown

Ye aspiring ones, listen to the story of the unknown
Who lies here with no stone to mark the place.
As a boy reckless and wanton,
Wandering with gun in hand through the forest
Near the mansion of Aaron Hatfield,
I shot a hawk perched on the top
Of a dead tree. He fell with guttural cry
At my feet, his wing broken.
Then I put him in a cage
Where he lived many days cawing angrily at me
When I offered him food.
Daily I search the realms of Hades
For the soul of the hawk,
That I may offer him the friendship
Of one whom life wounded and caged.

Weekly Character Challenges

How It Works

The first three Saturdays of each month deliver weekly character rehearsal challenges straight to your inbox. Something dynamic, something experimental, something transformational.

Something to push the boundaries of truth in character.

The last Saturday of the month features a video rehearsal (also later available on-demand) where we … well, we go a little nuts. We set free our solo work in exciting, experimental ways - evolving, enhancing, and challenging our work.

March through July: EA’s Spoon River
August - November: Anton Chekhov’s Plays

Monthly Mainstage Rehearsal Project

How It Works

On the first Saturday of the month, our MainStage rehearsal project gets posted exclusively for members to play with all month long. Your posted material always receives feedback taking your creative work further.

Each project builds out an array of rehearsal tools, applying them to work you’ll remember forever. The stuff that makes acting worth investing in. Worth believing in.

The monthly projects are tailored to move at your pace - and are available anytime you’d like to revisit them. The work is timeless. Apply your discoveries to any new character, any new world that finds you in your training and professional life.

March through May: O. Henry
June through August: Oz
September through November: Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale

It’s about your creative potential taking you where no one has gone before. It’s time to roar.
