We have completed phase one of rehearsals.
We return to work again on May 1, 2014.
The marionettes have made their first appearance during the story of the Queen on the barge, only to end up a discarded pile of dead children.
Then, we seem to be in a British Dance hall, where the ragtime music takes us away from the troubles of the day. The sisters dance he Grizzly Bear with the marionettes as Andrei takes the stage as a nightclub performer, belting out "That Shakespeherian Rag".
But then it seems the dance hall is closing, and the washerwomen clean the room with their rags in a series of mundane, repeated movements, all the while gossping about poor Lil.
When Lil's husband Albert was demobbed, her friends admonished her to get a new set of teeth and to get her health straight so she could be more attractive to Albert.
But Lil confesses her poor health is due to the five miscarriages or abortions or children she has born over the years.
The washerwomen leave the bar at last, handing in their washclothes to the barman.
After they leave, he let's each washing rag fall to the ground as he recites: "Good night ladies, ladies good night, good night, good night."
Ophelia drowned herself in madness. It wasn't in the Thames, but if Eliot had his way, it would have been.
