Richard accounts for life on stage
AN ACCOUNTANT who became an actor gave a talk at the latest men’s breakfast.
The first talk since summer took place on Saturday, September 13, at the United Reformed Church, in Aylesbury End, Beaconsfield.
Richard Worland gave a his take on the Life of a Jobbing Actor.
An accountant by profession, Richard came to acting late in life when he was given a part in an amateur production by the Chiltern Shakespeare Company at Hall Barn.
He began to take acting more seriously until, after a year in drama school, he began acting professionally.
His work covers everything from role playing in training sessions for the police and doctors and taking part in murder mystery dinners to appearing in television advertisements and performing in stage productions.
John Hoar, who organises the talks, said: “He illustrated some of his roles in stage productions of Dads’ Army, Porridge, Steptoe and Son and Fawlty Towers, to the great amusement of all present.”
