  • The Unspoken | Q&A with Actor, Will Teller

    September 2, 2018 Blog

    What most appealed to you about The Unspoken?

    Everyone will have a different opinion about The Unspoken and I like that. For me, The story is symbolic of how men, even with the best intentions, have oppressed women for centuries.

    At moments, the audience are likely to hate your character, Jimmy. Did you have any reservations about playing him?

  • The Unspoken | Q&A with Actor, Elliot Blagden

    August 30, 2018 Blog

    What was it that first attracted you to The Unspoken?

    It’s the type of script that’s a real gift to an actor. It’s a bit of a cliche, but you always want something you can really sink your teeth into. Plus, the role of Dr. Rose is awkwardly funny yet dark at the same time, which I love.

    You play two characters in the play, both with very different agendas. How much of a challenge was that?

    As they’re …

    In The Unspoken you play the lead character, Maggie. What was it that attracted you to the role?

    I liked her journey of trying to figure out life. As an actor I get to explore so many different situations with this one character and it’s challenging and fun all at the same time. She’s strong willed and knows her own mind, but she also has a caring maternal side, which makes her very human and relatable, …

  • The Unspoken | Q&A with Writer & Director, Jody Medland

    August 8, 2018 Blog

    How did The Unspoken come about?

    The first draft was written back in 2003. I was experimenting with the playbook format as I’d never written a play before. At the time, I was also curious about how disgraceful a character’s actions had to be before the audience would refuse to forgive them, so I was testing a few emotional boundaries. I never looked at the script again until last year, when Actor Awareness set “class” as …
