Andy Roberts had close links to two outstanding British theatres during some of their most creative and productive periods. In the 1980s, the spotlight was on The Liverpool Everyman. Under the great Alan Dosser, the Everyman helped place community theatre on the world map and was instrumental in kick starting the careers of playwrights such as Willy Russell, Adrian Mitchell and Alan Bleasdale as well as nurturing the talents of an extraordinary company of actors Alan Dossor had assembled, including Bernard Hill and Tony Sher (now Sir) there was Johnathan Price, Alison Steadman, George Costigan, Trevor Eve, Liz Estensen, Philip Joseph, Matthew Kelly, Pete Postlethwaite, Julie Walters, Bill Nighy ..... absolutely awesome.

And in the late 1970s and early 1980s, in addition to music for theatre, film and television, Andy was Musical Director of the Royal Court, Sloane Square, London. It was here that he re-established a working relationship with Max Stafford-Clark and met Antonia Bird with whom he produced music for several theatre productions and films.
