Geoff Minogue is another of our Fair City gang this year – we love to give them the chance to get out of Carrigstown for the day.* I look forward to discussing two of my life’s great passions with Geoff over the weekend: the web and The Sound of Music. You can follow Geoff on Twitter where he tweets about, well, mainly #24HrDub lately! Go on over there and tell him he’s hilarious – it will make his day!
Introduce yourself please. You can even describe yourself as your favourite teacher might if asked today what you were like in school if you are feeling nostalgic.
Geoff Minogue. Doesn’t answer to ‘Geoffrey’ He’s a good egg with a weakness for chocolate cheese and various accompaniments. A handy golfer, wedding band rock star. Lately an enthusiastic student of web & design world. Past roles include hairstyling doll head on behalf of two young daughters whilst between jobs.
Have you participated in The 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre before? If yes what is your fondest/ most nightmare causing memories? If no what are you looking forward to/ terrified of?
No, first timer – Looking forward to making new friends and throwing a few googlies – terrified of the unknown nature of this venture, and also, Donna Dent 🙂
If you took a notion to write a play what element would you definitely include and why?
I could possibly sing and play guitar in a cape and to use the look I call ’73C’ (unfazed) – otherwise just gimme the cape
The 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre are now in their fifth year. Five years ago today what were you working on? Tell us what the highlight of that was.
My Kilkenny accent – and fitting a new kitchen – Highlights included regular work, early mornings, full days, intense stories, weird and wonderful work mates and pay day.
Have you worked with children or animals? How did that work out for ya?
Played Capt. Von Trapp many moons ago with two sets of seven children – had to grey my hair back then 🙂 – aka the Dog Whisperer in certain circles.
Don’t miss Geoff’s contribution to The 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin supported by BNP Paribas.Book your ticket now and see you on January 31 in the Abbey Theatre.
*I had to look up the name of the town that Fair City is set in. Cringe.
