The director speaks about The Perfect Rhyme

In The Curtain Club production of The Perfect Rhyme the cast of 3 actors spurt poetry and stampede on large Elizabethan books. Director Sharon Dykstra describes the play as the story of a poor poet (played by Steve Hetherington) who spends his days composing perfect rhymes to his “lady” (played by Nicole Downie). She further adds that working on a period piece is both exhilarating and intimidating as both the actors and the design team have to research the details of the period. For instance their posture, manner of speech, costumes, social norms were different. She thanks her design team for bringing to life the period and her actors for keeping her laughing throughout the rehearsal process.
