Philia character development...help please!
I'm currently playing Philia in my school's production of Forum. I already had a specific character in mind when I originally auditioned for the role, which was more of a genuine, sweet yet stupid, internal character, but it seems as if my director doesn't really care for what I'm doing with the character. Do you have any suggestions as to how Philia should be played to make it a more enjoyable performance? I think that I have pretty strong comedic timing once I have a character developed, I'm just unsure of how to play her. Help?
