What would you do differently to what you do now?
Be more organised and start show preparation earlier – opening night always creeps up on you and getting everything organised always takes longer than you think!
Who inspires you and why?
I love Martin McDonagh. His plays are brilliantly dark and comical but they never lose their poignancy or heart.
What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Right now I’m very passionate about the environment, so anything I could do to help stop climate change and slow down the incredible rate of mass extinction now underway.
Favourite holiday destination and why?
Nepal: beautiful mountains, friendly, welcoming people and delicious food. Also excellent shopping!
When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
A bar in Fitzroy – Melbourne’s nightlife is amazing and some of the best in the world. Super cosy and always guaranteed to be a good time. Usually followed by a show!
What are you currently reading?
The Big Issue short story special.
What are you currently listening to?
Leon Bridges album, Good Thing – amazing!
Deep fried camembert.
What does the future hold for you?
I want to put on more plays, more often, with an emphasis on interaction with the audience and hopefully convince some of my very talented friends to join me! I would love to see a culture develop where it’s normal and affordable for people in Melbourne to go to a new show in every week.
