Yay! A friend told me about this annual competition at Perth theatre, His Majesty’s (the only operating Edwardian theatre in the Southern hemisphere!) so I entered and I made it into the final 8. Woo hoo! The theme for this year is Treachery and Lechery in the 21st Century and we had to create a monologue for an actor that was 8-15 minutes long.
Last night was the premiere and it runs until Saturday night. I gotta say, it was a blast. My monologue is entitled Nut Job and is a dark comedy based on my cancer experience. I’m all good now though. It’s great to hear my words coming out of someone else’s mouth, and to hear a packed room laugh at all the right places. It’s such a blessing and an encouragement.
Below are a few (they don’t show much, as I couldn’t distract the actors) photos of last night and an interview with me that appeared in a local paper last week, with my Zoolander pose. It was fun to be on the other side of an interview I must say.
