Cheyne Curry

Cheyne Curry (author of Clandestine and The Tropic of Hunter) has posted a bit of fan fiction involving Renée O'Connor's character in Dean Teaster's Ghost Town. It's called Aces and Eights (The Ballad of Little Jack) and is "The story of Little Jack as seen through the crystal blue eyes of Madame Birdie?s prettiest prostitute."

"There are moments when you are acting when you have no separation from the character, and of course the goal is to have that all the time. I think it may be easier on some levels to do the theater because you can sustain this feeling longer without breaking in and out. I love these heightened moments in any capacity I can get them."
- Renée O'Connor (AUSXIP interview)

The lead story in the new book Women and Middlehood - Halfway Up the Mountain by Jane Treat and Nancy Geha is Renée O'Connor's account of her 1996 Kilimanjaro climb. The book can be purchased online from the authors' website for $19 (paperback), and the authors will autograph the book for you and among the optional free audio stories available with the purchase is O'Connor's To the Roof of Africa read by Jane Treat. They describe the subject of the book this way:

Middlehood women – from 40 to 65 – are in a powerful and rich time of life, but we are also struggling to come to grips with the changes going on within us. These contradictory feelings are brought on by both growing strengths and the waning of familiar ways of life. It often feels like climbing a mountain.



Tim Omundson - Eli

In 2003 O'Connor performed the A.R. Gurney play LOVE LETTERS, an epistolary chronicle of two characters' 50 year relationship, in London opposite Tim Omundson. Omundson was Eli (bringer of Christian Mythology) in XWP.


Macbeth art

Renée O'Connor was Lady MacBeth in the Shakespeare by the Sea production of William Shakespeare's Macbeth from 27 June to 16 August 2002. It was directed by Anna Andersen (not the one who thought she was Anastasia). Patrick Vest was Macbeth. He also has written and performed a one-man show about Henry David Thoreau, and is now a member of the NEW AMERICAN THEATER Studio Ensemble. Kent Toussaint was Macduff. He was also Kent in ACCIDENTS DON'T HAPPEN, a 2000 film with Renée O'Connor.
