Speaking in Tongues

Last day today at Theatre 3, Acton (ACT)

Lots more to come in 2012 from the Canberra Rep

I love Canberra and its arts scene.

And I love the many examples of how we truly do have one degree of separation in this town.

I occasionally swap arts notes at my desk or in the corridors of democracy administration at the Australian Electoral Commission with my colleague Ben. When he mentioned his role at the Canberra Repertory Society, and how they were doing a play called ‘Speaking in Tongues’ (the fore-runner to the film Lantana), my interest was piqued and I contacted the Rep to ask about an interview.

About an hour later a message bobbed up on our in-house messaging system from a bloke I deal with sometimes in our Strategic Capability Branch. Sam is an actor in the play and as the director was out of town, what did I want to talk about?!

A few hours later, Sam Hannan-Morrow and I were sat in the foyer of Theatre 3 in Acton. Sadly my prayers to St Anthony were fruitless and rather than the crisp clear sound of MP3, we have this rather gritty, muddy Samsung phone as a medium. My apologies. There’s no normalisation, editing or sound balancing — it’s raw, baby. And it’s a downloading nightmare, which is why the late delivery.

So with mere hours to go before you get yourselves a last chance to see ‘Speaking in Tongues’, you can console yourself in the fact that Sam apprises you in the audio of all the good things coming up later this year with Canberra Rep.
