Jo Randerson – 2001
Jo Randerson stares out from this edition of Red Light Means Stop: Six Super Solos from Aotearoa New Zealand, in which her play, Banging Cymbal and Clanging Gong, appears. BCCG, a 55 minute solo performance that chronicles the ups and downs of a 'ferral Barbarian at war', was written and performed at the Allen Hall Theatre in March 2001. According to Randerson's website, it is a 'wake-up call' for those who are asleep. During her tenure as a Burns Fellow, Randerson also wrote short fictions that were collected in The Keys to Hell (2004).
