- 1st October 2014

  • Chairman and responsibility for Website construction and maintenance and online sales. 

Ben made his acting debut in Roadwater way back in 1991, when he played the detective in the murder mystery 'Suddenly at Home' by Francis Durbridge. He then went on to play several policemen, but worried about being typecast he ventured into more challenging roles in both Panto and Plays. In 2007 Ben was finally persuaded to direct a play, and after much deliberation opted for the very funny script by Ray Cooney, entitled 'It Runs in the Family'. He then followed this up with two more Cooney scripts, directing 'It Runs in the Family' in 2012 and 'Cash on Delivery' in 2014. Whilst not being renowned for his serious acting, or his ability to learn lines, Ben has played many parts in Roadwater Productions ranging from Dames to Tennis Players, and Captain Hooks to Country Bumpkins.

Ben has responsibility for the Players internet presence, which has in the last 12 months become a much more reliable source for news and information regarding the Players. Ben took over as Chairman, when Allan Prentice stood down, at the 2012 AGM having served on the Committee off and on for many years.
