So Why am I Doing This?

I don’t know what Kate’s doing in the first pic but I can relate to the second.

My play opens tomorrow night and I am very anxious.  My only role (and really my only role since the first few rehearsals where the odd tweak to the script was made based on director and actor input) is to be nervous.  Psychologists say (or so I’ve read) that people are more likely to feel stressed if they have no control over a situation.  That would be me.  It’s reminding me why I stopped writing for theatre.  My answer to this was to buy new pillows for the set (with the director’s permission of course).  Surely that should guarantee a good, well-attended show.  Right?
