Actor Hoa Xuande makes his debut on Black Swan's stage in Tonsils + Tweezers by Will O'Mahony. As part of Black Swan's 2016 Bridging Company, Hoa is one of eight recent WAAPA graduates to take the stage in LOADED: A Double Bill of New Plays featuring Tonsils + Tweezers and Girl Shut Your Mouth. We chatted with Hoa about what his experience has been like.
Black Swan audiences may know Will O'Mahony first as an actor. He started with us in The HotBed Ensemble in 2009 with roles in pool (no water) and The Dark Room. He followed that with Twelfth Night in 2010, Flood in 2014 and, most recently, Glengarry Glen Ross in 2015. Other than Black Swan's stage, Will has also appeared in numerous productions at the Blue Room Theatre. But what some may not know is that Will is also a playwright and director. He was a member of Black Swan's 2014-15 Emerging Writers Program and has won multiple awards for his plays.
