What was your favourite moment in rehearsals?

If I had to pick one, I'd say lying on a picnic table outside our director's house, half-naked on a winter night, tied up with strips of sheets whilst having a bucket of cold water poured down my throat. If I had to pick one.

How is this production different?

If you like gender-bending, synth-pop infused classical text, copious amounts of blood and murderous inter dimensional beings, you've hit the jackpot with this one. If you don't like those things, YOU SUCK.

Favourite 80s band? 

You really can't go past Pixies. The band, not the supernatural beings. 

Ever have an experience of the sacred?

I'm not at all religious, so I've never experienced anything sacred. I like visiting religious sites though, but that more about architecture than anything else.

Favourite cheese?

Cheddar. Yeah, it's the boring one, but screw you.

Number of fillings?

A shameful amount for the son of a dentist.

Have you ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn't have?

I've only fallen in love with one person and I haven't scared her off for a fair few years now, so I reckon I'm on to a good thing there. Beginner's luck.
