Matthew Vickers has been involved with The Tower Theatre since Popcorn in 2003. He has played a variety of roles including St John Rivers in Jane Eyre, Colin in Absent Friends and more recently John Brennan in Coyote on a Fence and Mr Stephen Spettigue in Charley's Aunt.
 
Jill Davy has most recently been seen in Breathing Corpses for KDC at Barons Court. Other shows include The Science Experiment, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Christmas Carol, The Great Santa Kidnap, The Haunting of Hill House, Up Pompeii, The 101 Dalmatians, Kindly Leave the Stage and a variety of resort residential shows and musicals, theatre in education and panto tours.
Landé Belo has performed with various theatre companies in London, Paris and Montpellier, including La Compagnie Maritime, Garden Suburb Theatre and Incognito Theatre. Previous roles include Estelle in Huis Clos, Clotilde in Clotilde du Nord, Judas in Une Forte Odeur de Pomme, Fay in A Chorus Of Disapproval and Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing. This is her first production with the Tower Theatre. She is thrilled to be playing Francine and Lena and hopes she does them both justice.
 
This is Charlie Bailey's fifth show with the Tower and his third show this year. He first worked with the Tower playing Reggie in The Accrington Pals and more recently played Charley in Charley's Aunt. He has enjoyed working on a very poignant play with a very talented cast and directing team.
Edwin De La Renta trained under the Meisner technique at The Actors Corner in New York; previous credits include Top Buzzer (MTV Europe), Grass Roots (London Live) and Rise Of The Footsoldier 2. For the Tower, he appeared in One Man, Two Guvnors.
 
This is Nick Edwards's fifth show with the Tower following roles in The Vortex, The Deep Blue Sea, Time and the Conways and Mother's Day. He has acted and directed on the London stage with various theatre groups and is excited to be performing back at the Bridewell, his favourite venue. In his spare time, Nick is also a theatre assessor for offwestend.com
This is Katie Smith's fourth production with the Tower Theatre, having previously been a partying Geordie lass in Chalet Lines, a sinister Second Sidney in Largo Desolato, and a maid with a secret in The Doctor's Dilemma. Katie recently completed the Acting Diploma at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
 
Rob Ellis has a Masters in Directing from UEA. He has recently directed shows for Park Theatre, Theatre503, Bread and Roses, Hen and Chickens and Waterloo East Theatre. This is his fourth show for the Tower Theatre, having designed sound for The Night Heron, Hindle Wakes and The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband, on which he was also Assistant Director and Stage Manager. He is dead chuffed with how everything's turned out on this show.
