NF Simpson special: director Simon Usher

20th August 2010



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.
