NF Simpson special: director Simon Usher
20th August 2010
INTERVIEW: SIMON USHER
The director talks to Aleks Sierz about his production of If So, Then Yes (Jermyn Street Theatre), his first new play for decades, and about the playwright’s other work, such as A Resounding Tinkle (1957). Recorded at Dewynters, London.
When I saw Simpson recently he quoted a line from Henri Bergson about comedy being a momentary anaesthetic of the heart – but only momentary.
