Mansoor Noor: Book Me In

Date: 20 Feb 2018

“I’m a big fan of pacy, inclusive, contemporary Australian work,” says actor, photographer and all-round man-of-the-theatre Mansoor Noor.

“I think we have so many talented artists with interesting stories to tell and I’m thrilled to finally see more of them being embraced on both our indie and professional stages, as opposed to the classic American texts we have seen time and time again.”

Cage

“Jordy Shea’s writing interests me, as does the cast. FreshWorks is an excellent place to try out new writing, and that’s exactly what Jordy’s work is – contemporary, gripping and at times, viciously funny.”

The Wolves

“It’s exciting to see an all-female team including three actors who were nominated for Sydney Theatre Awards, led by young director Jessica Arthur, who is about to make her main stage directorial debut at Sydney Theatre Company with Lethal Indifference. I’m especially intrigued by how they will make an ensemble show with nine actors about soccer work on the Old Fitz stage.”

Black is the New White

“I was so disappointed to have missed the sold out season of this show last year. Sign me up for any new writing by Nakkiah Lui. Her work is daring, bold and exactly what Australian theatre needs right now.”
