Becoming the Beast Aleister Crowley
Actor and writer JOHN BURNS talks about his arduous journey to inhabit the mind of Aleister Crowley, one of the most notorious occultists of the 20th Century
What does a man see in his life time? What experiences shape and mould him from the outside and, perhaps more importantly, what happens within his own mind that drives him and makes him become the man he is? These are the questions any writer has to ask himself about anyone he is trying to recreate on the stage. Writing my one man play about Crowley was a journey, a journey to some dark and terrifying places.
