'I first appeared at The Lyceum in 1973 in the small part of a murderer in ‘the Scottish play’. David Burke was Macbeth and Richard Eyre was the director. Shortly after that, my first play Manson and Calley was performed at The Little Lyceum. Since then I have appeared eight or nine times at The Lyceum, the eighties being a particularly fruitful time under Ian Wooldridge when I played Tartuffe in Liz Lochhead’s Scottish take on the play and and Shylock in The Merchant of Venice. I also had a play on the main stage, The Grand Edinburgh Fire Balloon. More recently, I appeared in A Madman Sings to the Moon by Mark Thomson. The Lyceum is a wonderful theatre to act in because although it is a large theatre, it also has an intimate feel.'
