It was a gorgeous production; with three very talented young newcomers to the theatre in the roles of Mae, Cressy and Nona. I'd gone along last night to take a few publicity photos, and was pleased with how they turned out using my new 50mm lens:
Georgia McBride-Levi, Louvel Yapali and Josifini Hawkins
The Wah is already well into work as director of Joseph Heller's Catch-22, which follows Radiance in March.
Tomorrow, I audition for The Tasmanian Babes Fiasco. Most of my Felafel cast are returning; however, there are several extra roles that need filling.
Now Radiance is full of emotion, pathos and beauty. Catch 22 is contains biting satire, and messages about the futility of war and the frustration of bureaucracy. These are both such wonderful plays, and I'm so proud of the Brisbane Arts Theatre for staging them.
But this evening, the Wah was flicking through Squire Bedak's script for Tassie Babes, which I had printed out and properly bound at Officeworks earlier today. When he turned to me and said...
"How are you going to make his penis fluorescent?"
... I thought HOT DAMN, I CAN'T WAIT TO DIRECT THIS PLAY.
