Matt Roper: Wilfredo Deconstructed. Matt Roper.

Matt Roper + the first panto in New York for 100 years

"So," I said to British performer Matt Roper in New York, "Have you ever done a pantomime before?" We were speaking via FaceTime, obviously. "Years ago," he told me, "as a 20-year-old I was in Mother Goose at the Theatre Royal, St Helens, with 'Olive' from On The Buses. Anna Karen. She was great! What a woman! She was a Soho stripper in the 1960s in London. She was deported from South Africa in the Apartheid years. She was a puppeteer at a theatre in Johannesburg and gave a private puppet show to a bunch of black kids and she was deported."
