The Angus Pope Arts Fund
18.4.64 - 25.6.01
from Webber Douglas in 1988, Angus enjoyed a hugely successful theatrical career, essaying
leading roles in London's West End in productions ranging from Christopher Hampton's The
Philanthropist opposite Edward Fox to the role of Eddie in the ever popular musical Blood
Brothers. Angus' repertory credits included sojourns at Perth, Oxford, Clwyd
(playing the title role in Romeo and Juliet), Manchester, the English Theatre in Hamburg,
Westcliff and Greenwich. His many television appearances spanned everything from the
role of Lucas in ABC's Covington Cross to George in Portrait of a Marriage for the
BBC. On radio Angus was heard in a wide canvas of assignments; from Sir Agravain in
Arthur the King to Bosie in Oscar Wilde.
Angus, a passionate dramatic versatility
was his life blood.
Angus became a valued LSW member in 1999 and participated in many prison projects including a variety of sessions at HMP Woodhill, HMYOI Feltham, HMP The Mount and HMYOI Huntercombe.
Angus was extraordinary in his ability to communicate the joy of his work to a wide range of people. In an effort to honour that joy, a fund has been established: The Angus Pope Arts Fund. Small grants from this fund will be made available to selected ex-offenders who, upon their release, wish to pursue a study of drama as an aid to help them re-enter the nation's community at large.
