5 Questions with Ben Winspear

rsz_benwinspearWhat is your favourite swear word?
Aaghfufuuugenwhoputthatbloodythere?The noise you make when you step on a toy with bare feet in the dark.

What are you wearing?
I lost my favourite tracky dacks… So I’m rehearsing in something that looks a lot like a pair of old Qantas pyjamas.

What is love?
When you hear your daughter say in her sleep “I have the best dad in the whole world.”

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Jump For Jordan, Griffin Theatre. There are six wonderful performers in this beautiful, funny mirage, all of them stars.

Is your new show going to be any good?
If you enjoy your demonic possession, WWE wrestling and pole dancing with a dash of Daoism, you’ll probably feel right at home.
