John Sheedy is the Artistic Director of the Barking Gecko Theatre Company. He’s also the director of the sold-out operatic adaption of John Marsden and Shaun Tun’s haunting picture book The Rabbits, starring Kate Miller Heidke. He’s been trained by the National Institute of Dramatic Art. And he’s no stranger to fashion.
I caught John at a regular haunt in Northbridge, a little gin bar called Frisk where we’d chatted once or twice before. Over an afternoon drink I assailed him with questions about who he was, what he’d done, and how fashion had been a part of it all along.
