Quoted from the Why Not Stay for Breakfast? programme notes in 19** wherein he played the role of Davey: 'Hailing from London, this is Richard's second visit to South Africa, the first being in 1970 when he played in Wedding Fever with the late Sid James. Staying on he was seen in the Academy Theatre production of Stand By Your Bedouin. Then, Applause, Abelard & Heloise, Absence of a Cello, and You Can't Take It With You. Richard returned last year to play Johnny Tomorrow in The Playoff. He will be remembered for his recent portrayal of Ken Preston in the SATV's controversial war play Enemy. His interests outside theatre are wild life, walking, and outdoor life generally. Hence his love for this country.'
