There’s a theory that you must be in Northbridge to do well at Fringe. My show is in Mount Hawthorn, but I’ve been getting such a warm reaction from the wonderful packed crowds: first at my previews, and now at Thursday’s opening. It’s so affirming and beautiful.
I thought I’d see lots of people who knew each other – and there were. I wasn’t expecting the Victorian connection. My Bendigo friend Stephen started talking to my Perth friend Moira. Within five minutes they’d established that his father and her grandmother live in the same nursing home in regional Victoria! Freaky.
