I was greeted at the theatre door by a curly-haired man strongly resembling Arthur Meek, who wore a sharp blue suit with a real, bright pink bow tie.

“You look a bit lost,” he said. “Which seat are you in?”

I introduced myself and asked whether he was Arthur, the actor.

“I'm Richard Meros,” he said proudly. “B.A!”

Richard Meros Salutes the Southern Man is an all-encompassing experience. Part motivational seminar, part thesis presentation, part theatrical production, this one-man show was the result of a collaboration between Meek, director Geoff Pinfield and a writer named Murdoch Stevens. [More]
