    Loved this exhibition and have been giving it lots of thought since. Doing a bit of relevant reading and writing inspired by it, too. Still can’t quite believe that such an amazing collection exists yet get so little exposure to the public. All credit to The Arts Centre Performing Arts Collection team for doing such a brilliant job creating, an informative and insightful look see into the world of one of our great living treasures, Geoffrey Rush. Such an extraordinary yet ordinary man.
