My first production was as Oliver in the 1984 version. I didn't 'join' Players until 1986 when I appeared in Scrooge. Over the years I've appeared in 22 plays, musicals and pantomimes, playing everything from a lion in The Wizard of Oz to a drunk photographer in When We Are Married, from a shop dummy in Man Alive to a loveable layabout in Run For Your Wife. It's hard to say which character I enjoyed most, but I am a great fan of farce and so it would be hard to choose between my characters in Run For Your Wife or It Runs In The Family. As well as acting, I also helped build many of the sets. I now live in New Zealand, with my wife and two children.
