INTERVIEW #31
– HIDEOUS MAN ‘T31’

“I love women. I really do. I love them. Everything about them. I can’t even describe it.”

INTERVIEW #48
– HIDEOUS MAN ‘S17’

“The point being that this is what makes it so difficult, when for example you’re sexually interested in one, to figure out what she really wants from a male.”

INTERVIEW #19
– HIDEOUS MAN ‘X5’

“And plus now also she knows more about the human condition and suffering and terror and degradation. I mean, all of us will admit suffering and horror are part of being alive and existing, or at least we all pay lip service to knowing it, the human condition. But now she really knows it”

  • Scott Shannon has been performing and/or directing shows for Nasty Shadows since co-founding the Company in the Summer of ’99 — 15 years ago. Directing credits include: Geography Of A Horse Dreamer (2008); This Is A Play (2007 & 2010) and Marion Bridge (2009), the Company’s adaptation Orestes 2.1 (2009), Pinter’s The Dumb Waiter (2008 & 2010), and Beckett’s Play (2010), in which he also performed the part of ‘M’. April 2011 saw Nasty Shadows debut Scott’s first original work for the stage, The Table Experiments. Other on stage credits: ‘Jerry’ in The Zoo Story (1999); ‘Caliban’ in Rougher Magic (2000); ‘Clov’ in Endgame (2004); the single (or many) character(s) in the following one-man MacIvor shows: Wild Abandon (2007), House (2008); Here Lies Henry (2010); Monster (2011), and as ‘John’ in David Mamet’s Oleanna. After a year hiatus in 2013 Scott was thrilled to perform again last year, along with the challenge of directing, in the remount of Rougher Magic: A cubist Shakespeare, a play which has had lasting impact on his theatrical mindset. This Movember Scott is likewise excited about performing/directing the work of another writer who has had a profound impact on him with the staged adaptation of Brief Interviews With Hideous Men by David Foster Wallace — an experiment to see how well these translate to the stage with an audience instead of a reader. He thanks the casts/crews for all of their hard work over the years and for enduring his tangential rants, and thanks you the audience for your support of the Company.
