It has been a while since I’ve done an interview for Scenestr magazine due to a variety of reasons. Thankfully it was a delight to get back in the saddle for them and interview theatre director Xanthe Jones.
Saying Jones has multiple talents does not even remotely do her justice.
She wrote and directed Cluedo! The Interactive Game and is also the Artistic Director for Brisbane Immersive Ensemble which produced the show.
We spoke just after they had their preview night where she had stepped into the role of Miss Scarlett at the last minute.
Talking to her was a pleasure as she described genre tropes, having fun with the audience and what she tries to impart with her work.
