PETER POLYCARPOU

I went to see Peter in ARTEFACTS at the Bush Theatre on Friday. It was a brilliantly written show by young writer Nick Bartlett. Peter played an Iraqi archaeologist with power and gravitas. He was stupendous! There were moments when he looked strangely like David Suchet but this only seemed to add to the whole effect! He is over the moon because the show will be going off to Broadway after its UK run. All the performances in the show were seamless, I am sure it will do very well.

It was wonderful to have him playing Topsy at the Greenwich showcase of POSSESSED, we have been friends since drama school days and his presence gave me a confidence I needed then. He has always been a generous actor willing to give feedback on work and fantastic in rehearsals. Writers need people like Poly!
