Richard Fiske admits to being an adrenaline junkie.
He fulfilled that need in the past by serving as a U.S. Navy officer for 27 years, then as an engineer and diving and salvage engineer, also for the Navy.
Now he gets that fix onstage.
For over six years, he’s performed as an actor in the D.C. area. “I get to do fun stuff and be different people,” Fiske said.
His current role is Vanya in Christopher Durang’s comedy “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike,” the production launching Highwood Theatre’s 2017-2018 season. The play also stars Margaret Condon as Sonia, Rachel Varley as Masha, Thomas Shuman as Spike, Kecia Campbell as Cassandra, and Amber James as Nina.
