Quote of the Month

"All the training I've had is based on finding things internally and bringing them to the surface. Then I started trsuting that those things would be there. Now, I consider myself to be a hair actor. I find the hair, the clothes, the movement and the character starts to form. I'm also very influenced by the writing. You can be flattened by bad writing.

Tennessee Williams


Newspaper reports in 1961 announced that Tennessee Williams had decided not to attend any further sessions with his psychoanalyst. Asked the reason for this decision, the playwright replied: "He was meddling too much in my private life."

From The Little, Brown Book of Anecdotes, Clifton Fadiman, General Editor.

Down to the Wire

Clock reading 7:55

Then there was the stage manager who took the role a little too seriously. The play was the 1988 production of Bousille and the Just. The cast call, as is usual for Domino productions, was for 7 p.m., and the cast would typically arrive anywhere between then and 7:30. Normally if an actor is not at the theatre by then the stage manager would phone to see where they are. In this case, however, the stage manager would start telephoning the cast at 7:05.

Night after night this went on until the cast's collective patience reached its limit. On the final night of the performance the cast decided to meet at a nearby coffee shop to put on their makeup and to arrive at the theatre at 7:55 p.m., just in time to meet the frantic stage manager and start the show.

From The Domino Affair, by Ken Weston and Patricia Beharriell.
