Ask Warwick: Why Does Samson Wear Cool Shirt Designs Of A Birthday Party Shirt?

From the very first draft of the script, Samson put one of the cool shirt designs from the band Birthday Party on when he gets dressed to go and see Delilah. In pre-production, the costumer Heather Wallace made a t-shirt to Warwick’s specifications — one that he remembered having as a teenager. It was only then that Warwick told us the story of the cool shirt designs.
