BUZO’S SEXIEST WOMAN HONOURED...
“Art Nothing! I wanted to be brilliant in life, do you understand, brilliant in life!”
(Coralie from Coralie Landsdowne Says No, 1974)
Alex Buzo was Playwright in Residence at The Melbourne Theatre Company in 1972/3 where he wrote a number of his early successes. The MTC’s inspirational “Word Wall” in the new Sumner Theatre, scheduled to open in 2009, includes illuminated quotes from the world’s greatest playwrights. Buzo’s sexiest and most controversal heroine has been honoured. To find out about MTC’s fundraising appeal and how you can own Buzo’s famous “high-flying bird” click here.
