  1. Don't know Teechers or Bouncers well, but would the acting students tolerate a make-up that is more surreal and outwardly shows two sides of their character? A few years ago my A2s did Medea and the girl doing make-up painted the left hand side of Medea's face to look beautiful and glossy and glam, and the right hand side she gave bags and lines - sort of trying to show that Medea presents a false reality to the other characters. She gave Jason one side looking sort of strong and heroic (at one point she was going to paint mythical monsters on that side!) and the other side made him look weak and chinless. Maybe this would work for Bouncers - could contrast with a naturalistic make-up?
