Raphael Che was a founding member and the first chairman of Seals Players Foundation. He was already very active in the theatre during his university days, and participated in many productions that led to the formation of Seals. In the early years of Seals, he was also actively involved as an actor, and played different roles in many Seals productions such as The Odd Couple, Long Day’s Journey Into Night and Cat On The Hot Tin Roof. He moved to the US subsequently and became inactive. When Seals was revived last year, he became Chairman of the Foundation again. Playing Iago in Othello would be his first stage performance after an absence of over 20 years.
