Peter Kentish

peterkentishPeter cut his stage teeth as Rev. Hale in The Crucible under the stern eye of Bruno Knez at La Mama. This was followed by Theo in the world premiere of There's One in Every Unit. Then came three classical roles: Cardinal Wolsey in A Man for All Seasons (Adelaide Rep), Ben in Death of a Salesman and Frank Strang in Equus (both with Gilles Theatre Company. These were followed by three roles in Red Noses (AUTG). More recent roles have been as Witness 8 in The Investigation (Mayfair), Dr Weeden in Beyond Reasonable Doubt,  Wal in Hotel Sorrento, and Aide Turkle in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, (all with The Stirling Players).

The wheel came full circle in Megan Dansie's Burnside Players production of The Crucible in which Peter played Francis Nurse. In his latest role Peter played Marko, an 80-year-old Croation immigrant with awful WWII secrets in St Jude's Critics' Circle and Curtain Call award winning production of David Williamson's Influence. He has also played Sherlock Holmes in The Final Toast and several characters in the 2013 Adelaide University Guild production of Richard III.
