Publicity is hotting up for Chekhov in Hell in Wellington. There’s a cute interview with two of the actors, Victoria Abbott and Simon Leary, here. And Simon’s got a separate interview here
in which he says some nice things about the play (oh okay, ‘It’s a
crazy whirlwind that’s funny as hell with brilliant dialogue yet still
asks poignant questions’) and also promises that Jason Whyte (pictured)
who plays Chekhov is ‘an hilarious ball of awesome’, which is very much
what I look for in an actor. Jason Whyte himself gets a chance to talk
about his experience working on the play in an article for Capital Times.
And there’s a lovely preview article in The Dominion Post by Tom Cardy, based on interviews with me and Eleanor Bishop, and some impressively extensive research into me oeuvre.
