In our final blog from the Music rehearsal room, director Corey McMahon reveals how he came to know Jane Bodie and the challenges of directing a new play.
I was standing in the rehearsal room at Paines Plough, the new writing theatre company I worked for in London some years ago now when, having heard my Australian accent, an actress working with the company asked me if I knew Jane Bodie.
“Who?” I replied “No I’ve never heard of her. Is she a playwright?”
If looks could kill. It was obvious I gave the wrong answer.
