To read Graeme Blundell’s amusing recollection of his brush with the Vice Squad on the occasion of his first gig as a director, published in today’s edition of The Australian, go to this link.
The year was 1969 and the play was Alex Buzo’s Norm and Ahmed, which The Alex Buzo Company will be opening in Sydney on 5 August as part of a double bill directed by Arne Neeme. The companion piece is a contemporary reworking of Norm and Ahmed’s theme in a new play by award-winning playwright Alana Valentine, entitled Shafana and Aunt Sarrina. It promises to be a great evening.
