Plays and Productions since 2004

Updated 20.9.16

14th Feb 2015: This is yet another update to this list. It's easier to keep it in one place rather than blogging all over again...I've also included the authors of the plays, something that for some reason I failed to do previously. 

Back in October 2011 I listed out the plays I'd performed in this century. The ones I acted in before that were in the 60s, so I've pretty much forgotten the details, though I did have a couple of small roles in a curious comedy called Lady Precious Streamwhich we performed at the Globe Theatre in Dunedin. I also had some roles in one act plays that we performed the British Drama League competitions.  

The following is a complete list of productions I've been involved in this century:
