John Roberts (October 20, 1957–November 14, 2014)
It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Player John Roberts. John was a founding member of the Hyde Park Community Players and appeared in many of our shows, including Riders to the Sea, Antigone, Picasso at the Lapin Agile, and The Good Doctor. He was also the assistant director for Desire, Desire, Desire, for which he choreographed our first ever musical number. John’s talent, warmth, humor, and generosity have been an important part of the Players and enriched the lives of everyone who worked with him. We will miss him very much.
If you’d like to be part of the Players’ memorial tribute to John, go to the Donate page of this website and make a one-time donation in any amount.
