5 Questions with James Townsend

jamestownsendWhat is your favourite swear word?
Are you gonna print that? Geez… I’m going to stick with the one I use the most and the ever versatile, fuck.

What are you wearing?
An oversized vintage green jacket, dark tee, skinny black jeans with rips at the knee and black chucks.

What is love?
A chemical imbalance in the brain? Or maybe it’s balance. Either way it tends to make you do things.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Hamlet at Belvoir, 4 stars

Is your new show going to be any good?
That’s not for me to decide, we’ve worked hard on both of them and it’s for an audience to receive it and they hopefully respond positively. The reviews so far suggest we’re doing great work. Very encouraging.
