5 Questions with Scott Lee

scottleeWhat is your favourite swear word?
The C-bomb… but only in the confines of my car so know one can actually hear me say it.

What are you wearing?
A green hoodie I stole from my twin brother cause I’m a knob, and the only pair of pants I own (which conveniently has a massive hole in the crotch).

What is love?
I don’t know if I’ve fully figured that one out yet. For me I think it’s the moment when you let all those silly walls we all build down and have the freedom to be yourself (which in my case is being a bit of a nut).

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Rebels With a Cause directed by Simon Doctor. Was a cool little showcase at NIDA with a whole bunch of scenes from Shakespeare, Chekhov, Harold Pinter, Clifford Odets and other pieces I didn’t recognise but it was great fun and I’d give it 4 stars.

Is your new show going to be any good?
I bloody reckon it will be! 🙂 It’s such a fun play that, I think, already has a massive following. Kenneth Lonergan’s writing is mental! It’s so spot on and human and we are all having a ball rehearsing. The play really speaks to me as a young adult and hopefully will to those who come and see it… but at the very least it’s a hilarious play and I think everyone who sees it will have a giggle, maybe even a laugh out loud.

5 Questions with David Harrison‏

davidharrisonWhat is your favourite swear word?
The current favorite is ‘slunt’. My best friend Ashleigh can’t bring herself to say c-word but deems this an appropriate substitution.

What are you wearing?
An op-shop find – reversible Giants Baseball Jacket, grey t-shirt and some pajama pants that have cartoon pictures of peanuts on them with the slogan: “Go Nuts”. Yes these are my work clothes.

What is love?
In the paraphrased words of Jeanette Winterson: ‘You don’t fall in love like you fall in a hole. You fall like falling through space. It’s like you jump off your own private planet to visit someone else’s planet. It is a big surprise falling in love because you thought you had everything just right on your own planet and that was true, in a way, but then somebody signaled to you across space and the only way you could visit was to take a giant leap. Away you go, falling into someone else’s orbit and after a while you might decide to pull your two planets together and
call it home. And the falling was really the big jump that you had to make to be with someone you don’t want to be without. That’s it.’ Essentially, love = space travel.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
I actually just saw Hedda Gabler at Belvoir. I think it was a really worthy experiment in theatre making and I respect and admire both Ash and Adena very much for their talent and courage in an artistic and social climate that doesn’t necessarily support their vision. I give it 4 stars.

Is your new show going to be any good?
I’m a big fan of shows with a lot of heart and compassion. I think that is what the writers and actors have all brought to the table and if we can deliver that to the audience, then we’ve done our job.
