In the script or play, the negative is always written. It’s up to the actor to find the beauty, the positive.
As it is in life. The negative is always there. Nobody wants to be around the person that is negative all the time. Everyone wants to be around the person that can find the humor in the situation, the beauty.
When you’re making your choices during a reading don’t be so literal. Anyone off the street can read what is there but it’s up to the actor to find what is different.
