Maurice Denham and young playwright
Fifteen-year-old writer Abigail Docherty goes over the script of her play "Listen to my Inside Mind" with one of its stars, veteran radio actor Maurice Denham, 78, in a BBc studio. She is one of 21 young playwrights whose work has been chosen for the BBC Radio Drama Young PLaywrights Festival. 25/07/02 Maurice Denham has died, aged 92 in Denville Hall nursing home in Northwood, Middlesex, from natural causes. Denham was one of Britain's most sought-after and versatile actors for well over half a century. Although often cast as an official or military officer, he played clowns, detectives, clergymen, spivs, aristocrats and tramps in 100 films and a myriad of television and radio performances. From Macbeth to the voices in the cartoon version of George Orwell's Animal Farm, he was in constant demand. Such was his appeal to film-makers that in the late 1940s he appeared in 37 films in 37 months.
