Archie is returning to the Fringe after a lengthy break having last appeared as Inspector Goole in An Inspector Calls. He has played many a role in many a production over the years, from the musical The Boyfriend to Panto Dame Nurse Mini Maxidrawers in Weins in the Woods.
His claim to fame, he says, is standing next to Liam Neeson and Sir John Hurt as an extra in Rob Roy.
We are putting his talent to good use. In FLESH, he plays not only the Sergeant of Police and the Clerk of Court but does a marvellous turn as the dead body of Old Donald, though we stop short of allowing Dr Knox to dissect him – because we need him for the full run!
He loves the group number of Sailing to America which you will hear him singing regularly whether on the No 43 bus or on a steamer ‘doon the water’ to Rothesay pier. And watch out for his dance routines!
