Leroy - The Bad Seed

Brian has appeared in both classic and contemporary theatre productions, short films and government information campaigns, playing a wide range of characters from Oberon in A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Dr. Rank in A Doll’s House. His most recent appearance was in This Story Of Yours playing the lead character Detective Johnson. (SPOTLIGHT)


From This Story Of Yours – The White Bear, Kennington

Brian Merry, in particular, gave an outstanding performance as Johnson. From the moment the audience enter the auditorium and see him sitting there, brooding over his whisky, Brian puts everything into Johnson and it really works.

…the production does feature a cast of admirable performers: Brian Merry (Detective Johnson) oscillates skilfully from outrage to anguish.

From The Bad Seed – The Brockley Jack, Brockley

A special word to Rebecca Rayne (Rhoda) and Brian Merry (Leroy) for their clever and very interesting scenes together; they brought an element to the entire production that would have been absent without their sheer determination and wonderful connection.

I was also particularly impressed by Brian Merry who played the aggressive, simple minded, Leroy, the apartment Janitor who fatally misjudges the situation.
