5 Questions with Saro Lusty-Cavallari

sarolustycavallariWhat is your favourite swear word?
I appreciate the classics. Fuck has to be one of the most fluid words, profane or otherwise, we have at our disposal. “The night was fucked”. Was it good? Was it bad? Such is the wonder of the word that is fuck.

What are you wearing?
T-shirt and jeans… yeah my creativity does not extend to my wardrobe.

What is love?
Giving up your own sense of privacy and self and sharing it with someone else. Either that or “baby don’t hurt me.”

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Bell Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale and I think I’ll go ahead and give it 5. I love when some kind of weird, potentially gimmicky concept is done so well you think there is no other way of performing it.

Is your new show going to be any good?
Pirandello was getting pretty sick of proscenium arches, kitchen sinks and fourth walls in 1921. They’ve stuck around and if you’re still sick of them then come see our play because it’s no less out there in 2014.
