Honk if you are a personnage a clef

When Adelaide writer Peter Goldsworthy's comic semi-spec-fic novel 'Honk If You Are Jesus' was published in 1995, some sharp-eyed Adelaide readers (and perhaps a few Canberrans and Sydneysiders) saw more than a passing resemblance between one of the characters and a well-known conservative cove-about-town.

Now that the stage adaptation of the novel will be having its world premiere at the Adelaide Festival in March 2006, one has to wonder whether, on a whim, they invited the cove to play the character -- and, if they did, what he replied.
