'The deadly sins, rehearsal sketch' by Carol Chilcott

The seven deadly sins: Slightly different to the other drawing, it is getting more precise as rehearsals progress. Note the detail on the figure lying on the floor in front of the chaise, this is Sloth, who during the Sins’ introduction to Faustus, does very little except scratch her bottom. Carol has defined Sloth’s bottom with two circles, I imagine this is because Carol wants to record the development of Sloth’s role! Carol has included lots of detailed drawing of fruit and food piled up in Sin’s chaise long.
