INTERVIEW: JEREMY HERRIN. The artistic director of Headlong theatre company talks to Philip Fisher about directing Michael Frayn’s Noises Off for Roundabout Theatre Company, currently running on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre.

“Finding the psychological argument to play it fast and play it clean and to depend on the language and allow the language to do a lot of the narrative lifting… has been a really interesting challenge. It has been a positive experience, but I’ve noticed there is a slightly different relationship between actors and language and actors and behaviour. We’re slightly more writer focused.”
