5 Questions with Ainslie Clouston

ainsliecloustonWhat is your favourite swear word?
Definitely ‘motherfucker’ but pronounced ‘moderfucker’. Appropriate at any time of the day and in all situations. Especially as a term of endearment.

What are you wearing?
PJ’s… the best time of day moderfuckers!

What is love?
Demanding, consuming, addictive, inspiring, passionate, gentle, firm – life’s ultimate roller coaster… to quote a line from the play, “it won’t bow, it won’t serve, it won’t do what you want, what it should, it won’t be how you thought, or was taught how it was meant ta be. You can’t lead it cause it’ll be draggin’ you wherever it wants.”

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
The Floating World at Griffin. Blew my mind! Great writing, fantastic acting and surprising as hell!!! Loved every second of it.

Is your new show going to be any good?
It’s John Patrick Shanley… need I say more – the master of Brooklyn prose! It’s going to rock. We have a cast and crew who love the shit out of each other and the play! It’s raw, powerful, funny and honest – your ultimate lover! 😉
