It was a pleasant surprise as I waited outside The Factory for my meeting with Kylie Coolwell to see three familiar dogs rounding the corner and hear the familiar cry “Agro” before Kylie came into view. A well-known figure in Waterloo, Kylie Coolwell is the writer of Battle of Waterloo, which was an attraction at Wharf 1 Theatre from June 1-27. She is also the owner of Agro, Princess and Snoop.
