Meanwhile, Jax (Franz Drameh) finds a loophole that could potentially change history, but it is a risk he is willing to take.
Last week, I had the chance to see Matt on stage during a weekend performance of “Knives in Hens“. The play was amazing and Matt did a superb job. It was my first time seeing him on stage and I’m hoping it won’t be the last.
I got to sit down with Matt after the play for a mini interview, these were his answers.
Matt about the Play: It’s so intense and concentrated and the thing is, it’s not literal, it’s very symbolic and metaphorical and ambiguous, lots of questions are deliberately left unanswered. The play I think is very filmic, with the lighting and the pictures and the sensuality of it.
Matt about the Cast: The way we work together as actors, very early on we did a lot of physical work so that when we came to it, we’re way used to each other’s bodies. Getting used to the physicality of that so that there’s no fear for us as actors.
Matt about the Director: Our director is unbelievable, [Yaël Farber] she’s such a special human being and director.
Matt about any future projects: (smirks) Maybe.
Knives in Hens runs until October 7, so make sure to try and see him before the show runs end.
With a huge thanks to my friend Don for the tip, Matt have joined the cast of a small production that will run over the few couple of months in London titled ‘Knives in Hens‘.
