Frances Cuka
1936 - 2020

John Cooper R.I.P.


Frances Cuka, who died on 16th February 2020 after a time of poor health, was Logos's distinguished leading lady as Mrs Alving in “Ghosts” in 2006 and as Lady Bracknell in “The Importance of Being Earnest” in 2010.

Frances was born in London, and broadcast on radio's Children's Hour when she was a child herself. She trained as an actress at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and afterwards joined Joan Littlewood's famous Theatre Workshop company in Stratford, East London. There she was the original Jo in Shelagh Delaney's famous play “A Taste of Honey”, and went with that production to the West End and to Broadway. She also appeared at the Royal Court Theatre, then – like Theatre Workshop – at the cutting edge of progressive drama, and played leading roles at other major London venues.

On screen she was Bob Cratchit's wife in the Albert Finney “Scrooge”, Katherine of Aragon in the film of “Henry VIII and his Six Wives” with Keith Michell, and Doll Tearsheet to Anthony Quayle's Falstaff in the BBC Shakespeare.

She played Mrs Bassey in “Casualty” over a three year period, and another recurring character in “Friday Night Dinner”, as well as roles in other prominent TV programmes.

We remember with fondness her fine work in all the acting media.

John Cooper
1951 - 2018

John Cooper R.I.P.


The Committee and Trustees of Logos extend our sympathy and our appreciation of John to his family, especially his mother Jean.

John was on the Committee of Logos, and he was the founder of Traffic of the Stage touring company, having gone into production after a career in teaching. A lot of Traffic's work was touring schools, often with programmes designed to introduce children to Shakespeare, but he also put on tours of small theatres (the Gatehouse etc), often with classic choices, sometimes with plays of his own writing, of which he did a number, on varied themes. He had a great talent for raising backing and for organising resources - costumes, transport etc. He had a profound love of the poetic classics, especially Shakespeare.

He was lovingly supported by close members of his family, and when he was ill he moved to Devon to be with his people. A strong contingent of them came up to London recently for an evening of tributes to John - testimonials, musical renditions dedicated to him, and some excerpts from his writing - which was mounted by Leonie Scott-Matthews at Pentameters.
