This is James Phillips' first show with the Tower Theatre and he has thoroughly enjoyed the experience. His roles with other theatres have included King Rat in Dick Whittington, George Balfour in Posh, Bottom in A Midsummer Night's Dream and Fagin in Oliver! He was also a performer with the Oxford Imps Improvised comedy troupe whilst at University. James is originally from Birmingham.
Jennifer Quinn studied acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, New York, where she performed in I Am A Camera, Damages and Boy's Life. In London, she has worked on radio and short films. She joined the Tower in September 2010 and has appeared in Proof, Jake's Women, Damages, David Copperfield, The Mystery of Edwin Drood! and Dying For It.
 
One Man, Two Guvnors is Andy Barrett's fourth show with the Tower having performed in The Misanthrope, Princess Ivona and David Copperfield previously. Andy has acted with several other companies around London and favourite roles include Finbar Mack in The Weir, Felix Humble in Humble Boy and Sir Robert Walpole in The Art of Success.
John Chapman has appeared in or directed approximately 140 productions across more years than he cares to remember. Somewhat of a "latecomer" to Tower Theatre he has appeared in David Copperfield, Loot, The Mystery of Edwin Drood!, The Doctor's Dilemma and Season's Greetings. He is looking forward to next year more than he can say as he is fortunate enough to be part of the Tower Team selected to participate in the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Barbican and in Stratford upon Avon.
 
Edwin de la Renta trained at the Actors Corner NYC (formerly The Donelli School of Acting) from 2009 to 2011. Previous television credits include Top Buzzer (MTV), Silk (BBC) and football sitcom Grass Roots (London Live). Edwin can next be seen on the big screen in Brit crime thriller Rise of the Foot Soldier II.
This is Julian Farrance's fifth production for the Tower Theatre, having previously appeared in 5/11, Damages, Loot and The Doctor's Dilemma amongst numerous other productions as actor and director for other companies. Last year his play Shoot the Bugger was Runner Up in the Tower's First World War writing competition.
 
This is Camilla Fox's second show with the Tower Theatre Company, having previously appeared as Gwendoline in Travesties at the Bridewell Theatre in April. Other parts include Katherine in When Shakespeare's Ladies Meet, Ashbee Williams in Am I Blue and Alice in Closer, amongst other short film and commercial roles. She graduated in 2010 in Acting and Physical Theatre from St Mary's University London.
Adam Moulder has been with the Tower for a number of years, previously performing in Proof and Telstar. He's also playing Flute in the RSC A Midsummer Night's Dream that the Tower have been lucky enough to be chosen for. He's really happy to be a part of this production and hopes that you will find the play as funny as we all do!
 
Lisa Castle is delighted to be working with Dan again. Her most recent roles have been as Cecily in Travesties and Joan in After the Dance. Previous roles include Nell Gwyn in Playhouse Creatures and Corrie in Barefoot in the Park. Elsewhere : Nina in The Seagull (Frank Theatre) and Mistress Ford in The Merry Wives of Windsor (Rooftop Theatre).
Richard Kirby graduated from the City Lit in 2004 after spending many years in various drama groups in North London. He played the Lord Mayor of London in Catchy (Total Beast), Gravedigger/Player King in Hamlet, several parts in Comic Potential (Tower Theatre) and Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream (Connecting Arts). On screen has played a lorry driver in a safety viral for Transport for London, a disgusted passer-by in an anti-smoking viral, a villager in Born of Hope (Actors at Work) and Sergeant O'Rourke in Detective Story (Psychic Cat Productions). Has also been fight director on Double Falsehood and Turn of the Screw (CP Theatre) and on Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Tower Theatre).
 
Dan Usztan directed last year's production of After the Dance and has acted in Time and the Conways, The Habit of Art, Coyote on a Fence, Dancing at Lughnasa and Loot for the Tower. Elsewhere he has directed The Ruffian on the Stair, Our Country's Good, Bear Hug, The Merry Wives of Windsor, The Crucible and The Comedy of Errors.
