Shaun Rennie: Book Me In

Date: 3 Mar 2018

Director Shaun Rennie has a few free evenings now his production of Max Vernon’s musical The View UpStairs is up and running at the Hayes Theatre.

He’s not the kind of guy to spend downtime on the couch.

Kill Climate Deniers

“When the cast includes Sheridan Harbridge, Lucia Mastrantone, Bec Massey and the creative team consists of Trent Suidgeest, Jonathan Hindmarsh and Steve Toulmin, and everything’s being led by Lee Lewis, you know you are going to see some big, bold theatre. I can’t wait to see what they all come up with.”

Kill Climate Deniers plays at Griffin theatre until April 7

Diplomacy

“John Bell and John Gaden sparring over the destiny of Paris at the end of World War II sounds like a good night of theatre to me. Two living legends of our stage in an Australian premiere is very exciting and I love a good ideas and argument play.”

Diplomacy plays at the Ensemble Theatre, March 23 – April 28

Lethal Indifference/The Wolves

“I haven’t seen any of director Jessica Arthur’s work and I’m very keen to check out both of her current shows. I also am a big Emily Barclay fan. Who isn’t?

I love seeing one-person plays. Having worked on one (I Am My Own Wife), I find watching how other directors shape a work when there is only one actor onstage – and setting tone, style and pace – fascinating.”

Lethal Indifference plays at Sydney Theatre Company until March 10. The Wolves plays at the Old Fitzroy Theatre, March 14-April 14

In The Heights

“I’ve never seen it or even heard the soundtrack, but obviously it’s an exciting addition to the Hayes Season this year. From the brain that created Hamilton – come on!”

In the Heights plays at the Hayes Theatre, March 16-April 15
