Find out more about the actors behind out latest production, Abigail’s Party.
Adam has been with St John’s Players for 9 years. Previous acting credits: Last Tango in Little Grimley, ‘Allo ‘Allo, Up Pompeii, The Vicar of Dibley, Dangerous Obsession, Season’s Greetings, Yes Prime Minister and Elsie and Norm’s Macbeth. Directing credits: April in Paris and The 39 Steps.
Adam first joined St John’s players at the suggestion of his office colleagues who he says “politely suggested I needed an outlet for my sense of humour! This was about the time we were casting ‘Allo ‘Allo and I have gone on to act frequently since, as well as branching out into directing, poster design, web admin, and anything else that needs doing!”
Of his role as Tony in Abigail’s Party, Adam says, “I’m enjoying the challenge of getting into a character whose surface simplicity actually masks a lot of complexities, finding ways to convey what’s going on inside someone who doesn’t necessarily say a lot – he’s very monosyllabic, and not really most people’s idea of a good party guest. The play’s quite unflinching in the way it takes a mundane situation and peels back the layers. There’s some quite honest portraits of people we all recognise – not least ourselves – in the characters.”
