Roger Parkins, making his professional debut, is good at handling the audience and makes Meff bafflingly watchable.
James Loxton - British theatre Guide
Roger Parkins found the perfect balance of calm and authority for the club’s meticulously organised, over-cautious founder, ‘A’.
Niki Shakallis - Entertainment-Focus
I adored every moment Roger Parkins was on stage - frequently reminding me of a homicidally included Mark from Peep Show. David James - London City Nights
Roger Parkins as Antonio, palpably wrestles with his moral conscience.
Chris Omaweng - LondonTheatre1
Anthony Clark...coaxes entertaining performances from his excellent cast ...Roger Parkins’s jovial Meff.
Alex Sierz - The Arts Desk
His sidekick, the likeable Roger Parkins, plays Doctor Watson in the rather bumbling Nigel Bruce mould of best friend.
Richard Voyce - Plays to see
Roger Parkins is the perfect G&S performer. A light voice with just the right intonation and sharp diction, he plays a neat guitar too and richly deserved the applause.
What's on the Fringe
A key highlight to the piece that mustn’t go unmentioned, is the moment Roger Parkins as the Major General, performs the tongue twisting ‘I am the very model of a Modern Major General’ with ease, despite spitting out several words a second. Parkin’s scene stealer easily earns him the biggest applause of the night, leading to a rousing rendition at the curtain call.
Jack Thomas - A Younger Theatre
Parkins gave a performance of tremendous brio.
Rebbeca Crankshaw - Spy in the Stalls
The timing of the very first entrance by Roger Parkins and Mannering is spot on, and sets up the pace and energy that is continued. This is a well written, well performed, simple yet tricky piece of theatre.
