'The Blak comedy show you can't liver without! After huge success in 2006 & 2007, "Chopped Liver" is hitting the road again, launching a massive national tour with its first ever visit to regional NSW. Told through the stories of Lynne and Jim, the play uses comedy to humanise the experience of Hepatitis C and to break down social boundaries surrounding the virus, raising awareness and opening opportunities for discussion, prevention and support. It's about knowing that people with Hepatitis C are so much more than chopped liver. Source: http://www.regionalartsnsw.com.au/ebulletin/2008/july_e.html (Sighted 23/09/2010).

The Arc, the Tension, the Payoff : Experiencing Dramaturgy Kamarra Bell-Wykes , 2012 single work prose
— Appears in: RealTime , October-November no. 111 2012; (p. 10)
'My most successful, enjoyable, educational, frustrating, painful, stick-a-fork-in-a-toaster dramaturgical relationship has been with John Romeril and not just because he is such a talented and experienced writer (though of course this helps), but because he recognised my internal creative source and helped me to find a way to tap it. He has helped me to harness my raw style and unpack the thoughts that well up from the ground, through my body and around my head and which I struggle to put on paper in a way that is interesting and watchable for the ever elusive "captive audience".'
