INTERVIEW #14
– HIDEOUS MAN ‘T7’

“I’ll be doing it with some girl, it doesn’t matter who. It’s when I start to come. That it happens. I’m not a Democrat. I don’t even vote.”

INTERVIEW #28
– HIDEOUS MAN ‘S18’

“You can go nuts trying to figure out what tack to take. She might go for it, she might not. Today’s woman’s a total crap-shoot. It’s like trying to figure out a Zen koan. Where what they want’s concerned, you pretty much have to just shut your eyes and leap.”

INTERVIEW #2
– HIDEOUS MAN ‘R29’

“All right. That’s the bad part. Dozens of times. At least. Forty, forty-five times, maybe. To be honest, possibly more. As in a lot more, I’m afraid. I guess I’m not even sure anymore.”

  • Matthew Spinney is an amateur actor and civil servant, who among other things has been in a number of plays over the years in various companies. With Nasty Shadows Matthew has played ‘Gus’ in Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter and returned to the role for a second time a couple years later. With other groups Matthew played the role of ‘Constantine’ in Len Falkenstein’s Free/Fall which was produced for the Vancouver Fringe festival, and you might also remember Matthew from Bard in the Barracks as the ‘Porter’ in Macbeth. For Nasty Shadows Matthew has also played ‘Male Actor’ in Daniel MacIvor’s This Is A Play a couple of times, and stepped into the director role for MacIvor’s Here Lies Henry. Tooth of Crime (2nd Dance) found Matthew bringing ‘Crow’ to life in a powerful performance, and his last appearance on stage in The Art of Success was no less commanding in the face of baring it all or running in a skirt. Returning to the Shadow world this fall Matthew will reveal the most HIDEOUS details of three troubled men in the staged adaptation of Brief Interviews With Hideous Men. Matthew is delighted to have been a part of Nasty Shadows these past few years, and the Company is stronger thanks to Matthew’s drive and strength on and off stage.
