Alan Brough - Joins The Hump Day Crew to talk about his play Chesapeake
Written by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize nominated playwright Lee Blessing, The Store Room’s production of Chesapeake marks the first ever staging of Blessing’s work in Australia.
Art. Politics. Dogs. Chesapeake is a magical tale about a bisexual performance artist from New York, a conservative Southern politician and a dog that unites their fates forever. It’s a one-man play about the role of the arts and rolls in the dirt. Bringing Blessing’s trenchantly funny, agitprop romp to the stage are actor Alan Brough and director Todd MacDonald.
Alan Brough is well known on TVs Spicks and Specks amoungst other things, but what you may not know that Alan was once New Zealands most famous Transvestite....really?!?!
Alan joins The Hump Day Crew in the studio to talk through his up coming show and more about that strange role he had on Kiwi TV.
