The Doorman

Jo Haughton -  - The Doorman

I’ve gone back to “Zen and the Art of Falling in Love” as I tend to do. And I was reading the part about being the Doorman in the dojo. So the job of the Doorman was to be there. That’s all. Be there to help students if they had a question upon entering. The person just stood there, usually not saying much or doing much but just being a presence in case anyone needed help. The idea was to not force your personality on others. Not to smile and be overly welcome or chatty and thereby require the same from those entering. Not to expect them to do anything, or to put that burden on them. But just to be there, and be okay with not performing....

Do you perform theater works? I studied writing with an emphasis on Brecht and the Surrealists....I also did some focus on T. Williams. I haven't kept up, changed the focus of my life, what's good these days?
Jo Haughton
I do perform theatre as well as film. There's a lot that's good these days. So many great new contemporary artists have emerged. Not enough women writers, but still there's a lot of good work out there.

May I have some recommendations, please?
Jo Haughton
Depends what you like. Norm Foster is great home grown Canadian talent for fun and light comedy. Teresa Rebeck is a fantastic writer. John Patrick Shanley makes some disturbing but really well written pieces that I've had the pleasure to act. Also, the play Time Stands Still is beautiful.
