In a career spanning 60 years, Peter began aged 13 as a Lost Boy in PETER PAN at the Scala Theatre in 1954 and in 1962 he won the Gold Medal and the Ibsen Prize at Central School of Speech and Drama. His directors have included Steven Spielberg EMPIRE OF THE SUN feature film, Frith Banbury THE WINDSLOW BOY at the Coward Theatre, Michael Grandage CALIGULA at the Donmar Warehouse, Rodney Bennett SENSE AND SENSIBILITY (BBC), Thea Sharrock AS YOU LIKE IT and Christopher Luscombe THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR both at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
His singing and tap-dancing skills also featured in several revues and musicals. After a performance of a Noel Coward revue at the Mermaid Theatre, called COWARDY CUSTARD, Ginger Rogers came backstage and said to him, “I had to say I loved your tap dance. I just wanted to get up and dance along side you.”
In more recent times Peter has added author and playwright to his many accomplishements - his book for children STELLA AND THE YELLOW CELLO is already published and he has both a stage play and a memoire (about his West End run in Lloyd Webber's SUNSET BOULEVARD) in the pipeline.
