    Additional Skills

    Though not a singer, he has often sung onstage.

    He is a passionate advocate of good verse speaking, and has taken sessions of instruction in the interpretation and delivery of Shakespeare's verse.

    Additional Information

    Roger is a Trustee of Logos Theatre Company, and has held in turn other key roles including Artistic Director and Committee Chair. Logos was endowed by the late Kenneth McClellan to continue his work of performing the classics in appropriate and ungimmicky ways.

    He is not however the Roger Sansom of Roger Sansom Productions. There has been at least one namesake in the world of theatre, and this once caused a problem for Roger the Equity member. Earlier, when in rep, Roger answered a telephone call which turned out to be for a local volunteer, not a professional, whom he knew by a different surname! Much of this overlapping is unclear, but it has caused confusion.

    Review for "Richard II" Network Theatre 2016

    "Roger Sansom has a genuine stage presence as the Duke of York", remotegoat

    Review for "The Stand Up and Down", Camden People's Theatre, 2014 and 2015

    "Special mention goes to Roger Sansom as Dizzy Dan, the sex-obsessed psychiatrist. His is like an unctuous Alfred Hitchcock, sadistically directing one of his fragile blonde goddesses."

    Camden New Journal

    Reviews for "Almost the Birthday Party" Etcetera Theatre, 2014

    "Exquisitely played by Gil Sutherland and Roger Sansom, the two men never move from their sofa; nevertheless, it’s a bravura performance, full of energy, wit and theatricality. The oldest members of the evening’s cast, their experience and their handling of Paul Kalburgi’s taut script gives them a gravitas that really makes them shine. Almost the Birthday Party stands out for its sheer verve and professionalism, both in the writing and the performances."

    Everything Theatre

    "played brilliantly by the marvellously camp Gil Sutherland and Roger Sansom ..."

    So, So Gay

    Review for "Autumn Music" Pentameters Theatre, 2012

    " ... his hilarious friend and drinking partner Luigi (Roger Sansom) ... gives him the encouragement he needs. Soon Eugenio is courting Isabella (Dot Smith), only to find his family has issues with her family. Particularly her brother Francesco, played by Sansom again but in even better form."

    Camden New Journal

    Review for "Ivanov" Pentameters Theatre 2009

    "Roger Sansom is over the top and very funny as the exuberant alcoholic Borkin."

    Hampstead and Highgate Express

    Review for "The Tempest" Pentameters Theatre, 2008

    "Gonzalo is given an unusually vigorous portrayal by Roger Sansom"

    Hampstead and Highgate Express

    About me

    Roger Sansom has been in the profession since the Sixties, has worked around the British Isles and beyond. He has appeared in more than half of Shakespeare’s plays, some more than once. Other playwrights he has interpreted include Chekhov, Ibsen, Shaw, Coward, Rattigan, Priestley, Marlowe, Strindberg, Sophocles and Moliere. As a lifelong devotee of detective fiction, he is equally proud of performing the works of Conan Doyle, Christie and Sayers. Loving classic children's literature too, he is happy to have played Mr Badger in "Wind in the Willows". Sadly for a fan of the Alice books, he has not been to Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass yet; he has twice been offered the King of Hearts but (for reasons buried in history) not taken the part.
