THEATRE: THE EXTREME SPORT OF PERFORMANCE with Mary Rachel Brown and Jamie Oxenbould

The latest guests of the Mini-Masterclass podcast are Mary Rachel Brown and Jamie Oxenbould. Mary and Jamie operate in different spaces within the theatre scene: Mary writes for theatre, and Jamie is an actor. They were recently residents at Daffodil Cottage, and sat down with James at a cafe in Katoomba to talk about their current project,  titled Chicken In A Biscuit, which is a comic show of monologues and characters talking about the strange, beautiful and utterly necessary relationship between humans and their pets. 

In this conversation Mary, Jamie and James discuss the relative merits of theatre, the tightrope of performance, why animals make such interesting subjects, the origins of a comedy idea, and much more.
