In light of the intense focus on feminism at the moment and "good and bad" male behaviour - I wondered if it wasn't possible to take this story and adapt if for Australia and somehow reflect on the ways in which some men are finding it very hard to understand sexism and bias. Or perhaps the ways in which women's power base is so different to a man's in our society. I am a bit torn - I find this story really compelling, but perhaps I'm trying to do too much in one play.
At any rate I am in the thinking stage and not much else.
I also put on a play, those of you that know me know that it was goddamned hard work. And I am SO sick of the undead. Not in film format of course, I love zombie films, but I am sick of zombies on stage. I just need a break from those undead motherfuckers.
It was a great show, thanks for asking, and we are still reconciling the whole thing (like, an actual financial reconciliation) and reflecting on it. I have had a lot of people offer to edit it for me, which makes me wonder if it was no good. or good enough that its worth a cut. Ha. I am very happy for people to cut the play and give it back to me, if you want to do it too, whomever you are, you are welcome.
I won't be cutting Anno Zombie again for the minute, instead I'm going to write a screenplay with the gorgeous Alice Bishop because, among so many other things, she loves pie too. This is a ghost film and will be so scary that Alice won't actually ever be able to watch the whole thing. I love that she is VERY scared of ghost films but agreed to write and make one with me. We have a great story, a great Australian one, I'm excited about it and can't wait to finish it and make it and then write a blog about it. See you in 4 years.
No, I'll be back before then. Promise.
