Cast of Virgins Die Horny

In August, I was given the opportunity and pleasure to shoot promotional images of Virgins Die Horny- A Play by Sal Cesare.  Rehearsals were held on the top floor of a lovely block of Victorian flats near Belsize Park.  Loads of natural light, and a rooftop to shoot on. Typically when I shoot dance or theatre rehearsals, I try to connect with the material on a very elementary level, just to help guide my creative eye.  However, with VDH, I did find myself sometimes distracted, and immersed in the varied emotional monologues of the characters.  They were raw, complex, and real, and sometimes peculiarly disturbing.  Now several months later, I made my way to the Courtyard Theatre (this past Wednesday) and watched the entire production; now on a stage, costumed, laden with props, played by actors deeply in character.  Often, I was transported back to that Belsize Park flat; remembering the raw honesty of the actors monologues.  Then, they were fighting to take risks,  now I was witnessing the fruits of this risk taking.  I felt many things that night (love, intimacy, betrayal, secrecy), but one thing I felt overwhelmingly was our ability to experience honesty despite it’s very real, and sometimes raw consequences.  If you get the opportunity, catch it before it closes on 16th Nov.
