Earlier this week, I attended a lecture given by the actress Kate Burton, otherwise known as Dr. Ellis Grey (from Grey’s Anatomy) and Hedda Gabler.
After the lecture, I spoke with her briefly about working on a play by Martin McDonagh. She performed in his play The Beauty Queen of Leenane a few years ago. I mentioned that I had performed the opening scene of The Pillowman for my acting final.
To make a short story even shorter, it ended with Ms. Burton recommending the rest of McDonagh’s works to me.
