This project report explores the process of creating a character that is meant to be 'big' in nature and of grounding that nature in reality, as realized in the role of Suzie in Melissa James Gilbert's Current Nobody . The play was produced by California Repertory Company aboard the Queen Mary in the Royal Theater, November 20th–December 12th, 2009.
Yevgeny Bagrationovvich Vakhtangov achieved a theatrical synthesis by marrying the methodologies of Constantin Stanislavski and Vsevolod Meyerhold. From this he created "Fantastic Realism", a technique that calls for the actor to be outwardly stylized and internally realistic. Through his methodology, I was able to achieve harmony between theatricality and the nuances of psychological realism in the development of my character Suzie.
