Brian Lawless was associated with AmDram in London the 1960’s taking a familiar path starting with Gilbert and Sullivan and ending by playing Judd Fry in Oklahoma before marriage, family and work took it’s toll.

Brian always vowed to get back to acting when it was possible and the opportunity came in 2010, after a 42 year break, when living in Exeter (where he still resides). In the seven years or so since then he has appeared in 28 different productions including some rather grand ones in  Exeter Cathedral. His favourite role to date is that of Magwitch in Great Expectations.

‘A Belated Date’ is his first attempt at writing a short(ish) play and it is based on a true story with many amusing moments. Luckily he was not one of the actual participants in the real story.
