Auckland Theatre Director Makes it to the Blogosphere

Auckland Theatre Artistic Director Makes it to the Blogosphere

Auckland Theatre Company's Artistic Director, Colin McColl, has begun a weekly blog. Taking the name from Sarah Kane's play 4:48 Psychosis, McColl will talk about the things that wake him in a sweat at 4:48am each morning.

The role of Artistic Director is a mysterious one to many people. It's a job that doesn't finish at the end of the day. In fact, it often occupies all the Artistic Director's dreaming time too.

The first blog is online now at: http://www.atc.co.nz/blog/2013/5/8/448am,-wednesday-8-may-may,-2013.
