About me:

Press on THE INVISIBLE MAN:

“And speaking of talent, Matthew Parker gives us a wonderfully over the top – almost pantomime dame-esque – Mrs Hall, a beautifully bumbling vicar and, in the second act a gravitas-rich performance as Dr Kemp.” London Theatre1 |

"Parker’s performance is full of comedy in so many of his shrewdly-observed characterisations... A master class in extended acting and characterisation." Review Chap |

“All three actors are a delight – watching Matthew Parker shift from winking barmaid to saintly vicar to lascivious old sea salt is a joy” London Pub Theatres
