In April 2014 I had the pleasure of working with BAFTA Award winner Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter, Dickens’ Women). She joins Adelaide’s State Theatre Company for the first time in a glorious new Australian comedy about hope, death & pets. From the unique imagination of Lally Katz (The Eisteddfod, Stories I Want To Tell You In Person) springs a world of wonderfully neurotic, painfully recognisable characters. A delightful odd-couple tale, Neighbourhood Watch tells the story of a young woman, Catherine, & her surprising friendship with her neighbour Ana, an 80 year old Hungarian-Australian widow.
The three TVCs were produced by Adelaide based Production Company RedBikini. It was a simple shoot but a lot of fun so thanks to all involved.
