TRIBUTE TO ROGER DWYER (article first published : 2007-04-6)

Former head of Drama for the Natal Performing Arts Council (NAPAC) now the Playhouse Company pays tribute to his former colleague and friend, the late Roger Dwyer.

I have only the happiest of memories of Roger. When I was Head of Drama for NAPAC it took me a long time to lure him down to Natal for Terra Nova (Captain Oates); The Ghost Train (Dr Sterling) and On The Razzle (Weinberl) in all of which he was delightful.

Best of all, however, came after I had left NAPAC but was engaged to play Firs in their production of The Cherry Orchard where Roger had a leading role as Gayev. It was a privilege to be on stage with him. He was most generous actor and as likeable off stage as he was on. He will be sadly missed. John Moss
