As it was... Tony the Teacher has posted an interview Tim Lane did with Brent Croswell in the SSS yesterday.
TL: Everyone laughed in David Williamson's play, The Club, when Geoff Hayward, the Tassie recruit, saw a strange apparition coming at him one day at Glenferrie. It's much more serious now.
BC: It is, and that's the point, isn't it, the way we might react to that particular character and what that character was doing might be very different today. I don't know. I haven't gone to the play for 20 years or longer. It would be interesting to see the reaction to Geoff Hayward. I think people would perceive him a little differently from how they did in the '70s.
TL: Were you Geoff Hayward?
BC: The character might have been loosely based on certain things that I did.
