5 Questions with Marissa Dikkenberg and Lisa Chappell

onoff1What is your favourite swear word?
MD – Fuck….said with a quiet & dramatic intensity when no one is listening…
LC – My favourite swear word is “bugger shit tit wees”.

What are you wearing?
MD – I would like to say I am dressed head to toe in something sexy & exquisite looking faaabulous but that would be a lie. I am in a t-shirt & tracky daks with mismatched underwear & no makeup! Puhleeeze don’t tell my Mum she is a style meister!
LC – I’m wearing floral cords and a baggy t.shirt. Yes I look slightly reminiscent of my grandmother’s lounge suite.

What is love?
MD – Love is action, it is also the ability to cherish and adore yourself and others without conditions.
LC – Love is my dog, George. Unconditional, loyal, affectionate, smart and makes you a better person.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
MD – Penelope by Siren Theatre Company. I LOVED it! I cherished & adored it without needing to change it… I still think about it, 5 stars.
LC – The last show I saw was Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead. I didn’t make the second half, not a Stoppard fan, too much head not enough heart for my liking. 3 stars because everything else was great other than the writing for me.

Is your new show going to be any good?
MD – It will be vibrant, honest , fun & it’s R18 so hell YES it’ll be good x
LC – My next show ON/OFF is the opposite of Stoppard, it’s completely visceral. It’s coarse, funny, full of heart, and has great music. A rollicking night out!
