SmartArts: Alex Hines On Why She Wrote A Show About Schapelle Corby
2022 Golden Gibbo-winning comedian Alex Hines joins Richard on SmartArts to talk about her fantastical camp comedy To Schapelle And Back.
To Schapelle and Back is a hilarious psycho-cosmic fantasia of Australiana nostalgia about Schapelle Corby. Created through the real-life friendship between the pair - struck up over social media during Melbourne’s lockdowns - the show draws on real exchanges between the two and has as much heart as it does musical homages.
Alex talks to Richard about what makes Schapelle such a fascinating figure, why the media treated her so badly, and what it is that has made her “the Millennial’s Ned Kelly.”
Listen to the full interview below.
To Schapelle and Back is on until May 28 at Butterfly Club. Head here for more details.
