Previous to the Tower his theatre credits include Malcolm in The Full Monty (Salon Varieties, Spain), Emcee in Cabaret and Gary Lejeune in Noises Off (all for Salon Varieties, Spain). Andy trained at Bretton Hall.

This is Helena Franklin's sixth Tower Theatre production; she previously appeared as Lue in The Winterling, Jacie in Comic Potential, Melitta in Mrs Klein, Lucille in The Slab Boys and Queen Ane in 5/11. Helena has also been involved in many Shakespeare productions including The Tempest (Miranda) and Henry V (Princess Catherine), and has performed a number of times at the Minack Theatre in Cornwall. Whilst studying for a BA in English Literature and an MA in Shakespeare at University College London she was an active member of the Drama Society, with parts including Dotty in Jumpers and Elizabeth Barry in The Libertine.

She has been a Tower member since 2000 and has performed in a wide range of roles including works by Noel Coward, Tennessee Williams, Neil Simon, Brian Friel and David Mamet.

Ian Hoare joined the Tower in 2002 and this is his 21st production as an actor. His favourite roles have been Hamm in Endgame, Lord Cecil in 5/11, Otto in The Diary of Anne Frank and Rev. Parris in The Crucible. A journalist and lecturer by trade, Ian lives in Holloway within easy walking distance of the greatest football team the world has ever seen.
