Member Profile:Hugh Dower [Feb 2000]

Hugh Dower


Hugh now resides in the Yorkshire Dales but spent the nineties in Wickenby just down the road from the theatre. During that time he was involved in most of LRP's productions in one way or another and was also a member of the committee.  In recent years Hugh has performed with various groups in York.

Hugh not only acts, he also counts writing and directing among his talents.  A most notable moment was seeing Hugh's very own play Putting On the Screws performed both at the Broadbent and Trinity Arts Centre with a very fine cast and talented director.

Since 1993 Hugh has considered himself an evolutionary philosopher as reflected in the content of his website,  Take a look, it makes an interesting read.
