Bound but not gagged
Tonight I went to see John's play with a friend of mine. I think we're being quite the amateur theatre fanatics around town these days... this is the second one we've seen in 2 weeks.

The previous one we saw was Outcast Theatre's 'Naked' production. Which was rather heavy, although humourous in parts and with a minimum amount of costuming (i.e. a towel at most).

Tonight's play, 'Salome' is apparently a production of one of Oscar Wilde's French plays set in - of all places - a BDSM club. John was centre stage, handcuffed and in a tight pair of leather (or rubber?) shorts.

Overall, the actors gave a good performance - and this is especially so considering the director is an absolute wanker.

I'm sure if you get to know him, outside of the theatre, away from anything remotely stressful or stimulating, he might be a pleasant, down-to-earth kind of guy. But give him a script, a cast and a few strobe lights and he pretty much becomes Melbourne's Number One Wanker.

This might seem a little harsh, considering I've had very little to do with the man except hear other people's anecdotal evidence and my own brief brush-in with him while attempting to get back to my seat after going to the toilet, but still, he doesn't seem all that pleasant to be around. Is it any wonder this time around he has a "whole new cast"?

So... to the rest of the cast and crew - great job! Hope to see you at another play soon.

How someone could so accurately describe the person who has been giving me the shits for two months after only an hour in his presence astounds me!

I can only applaud Aaron. Know that the whole cast agree with you mate.

What can I say, it's a gift.

I bet you're glad it's over now!
