Denis Steer

Denis’ theatrical career began during the latter part of the Second World War.  Stationed with the RAF in the princely state of Jodhpur, India, he featured in a series of plays presented in the Palace Theatre of the Maharajah – one of them directed by Basil Dean,  a theatrical legend of the inter-war years.  In New Delhi, he ‘walked on’ carrying a spear in John Gielgud’s Far Eastern tour of Hamlet.
