Next Stage Festival Interview with Alistair Newton – Writer/Director of ‘Loving the Stranger’

10 Jan

When you see Alistair Newton’s name – or that of his company, Ecce Homo Theatre – associated with a project, you can be certain you will be in for a highly theatrical, heavily researched, and critically minded piece of stage work. His refined Next Stage Festival remount of Loving the Stranger, which chronicles (among other things) the story of gay concentration camp survivor and artist, Peter Flinsch, is no exception. Here is our conversation with Alistair, including his thoughts on the dangers of apathy, the dichotomous nature of Weimar-era Germany, the political value of entertainment, and how an 89 year old man decorates his kitchen cupboards.
