How would you describe your show to your grandma?
Just go with it Grandma! Also this is what I used those fine china tea cups you gave me for. (Don’t worry, these are her B-grade teacups – she’s currently de-cluttering).
Favourite thing about Summer in Perth?
The lovely weather, icy beverages on the porch, the large amount of sunshine hours and hence roller hockey hours, the collective excessive sweat, cheeky beach swims after rehearsals – and of course that it’s festival season!
What do you want audiences to take away from your show?
That even if we want to escape sometimes we are stuck with ourselves, so we might as well get on with it and try and love ourselves. And that there is great potential for fun in everyday things.
What’s your favourite banger (song) to party down to this Summer?
Really enjoying Brockhampton and Confidence Man at the moment.
