5 Questions with Mel Dodge

meldodgeWhat is your favourite swear word?
I like to let out the c-bomb. Followed by a ‘sorry for the c-bomb’ statement.

What are you wearing?
It’s Saturday morning so I’m having a lazy morning in my pyjamas, drinking a good strong coffee.

What is love?
Love comes by surprise. It creeps up on all the Jane Austen characters and I think that’s true in the real world too. It is playful, passionate, loyal and we can’t control the package it arrives in.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Beached. 3.5

Is your new show going to be any good?
Jane Austen Is Dead is lots of fun. It’s a contemporary story about searching for love… love that comes in the package of a Jane Austen hero. We’ve played to sold out crowds in Wellington and Adelaide, so Hopefully Sydney will love it too! It’s a great show for bringing a group of girls (although it has enough laughs for gentlemen too!!!) and having a few pre/post show drinks. Read Suzy’s review here
