This is Gemma-May Bowles' first production with Tower Theatre and she is delighted to be playing Hilary. She trained at the Bridge Theatre Training Company, graduating in 2007. Her previous theatre credits include Maggie Hobson in Hobson's Choice, Her in Manger A Trois, Lucy (and other comedy roles) in Dracula - Fangs of Destiny, Violet Bick in It's a Wonderful Life! and Oliver in Simply Dickens.
 
William Baltyn appears regularly on the London Fringe, most recently appearing in These Shining Lives at both the Pleasance and The Lion & Unicorn. In summer 2014 he was in another show about a dinner party, Manger A Trois at the Rosemary Branch. He has played Prince Charles in The War of the Waleses in London, RSC Stratford and at the Edinburgh Fringe. Other roles have included Konstantin Levin in Anna Karenina and a surprising number of nameless parts such as Father, Interviewer, Priest, Narrator, Zookeeper and finally Soldier in Terrorism for the Tower in 2011.
Harriet Wilkinson joined the Tower in December and has jumped straight to the stage in her first performance with the company. She is a member of the National Youth Theatre and has recently graduated from University where she studied Drama, performing in Women at the Thesmophoria and Oedipus as well as travelling to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with the Z Theatre Company to perform Going for Gold.
 
Colette Dockery has been a member of the Tower since 1990. Starting as an actor, she started directing around 15 years ago. Previous productions include Mojo, The Slab Boys, The Vortex and, most recently, Two.
Rob Ellis has an MA in directing from the University of East Anglia. Since moving to London, Rob has directed numerous short plays for West Avenue Theatre and was Assistant on A Flat full of Chandeliers for Twisted Dame Productions. He is AD for Relish Theatre, whose debut production A Matter of Life and Debt performed the Edinburgh Fringe last year. He is also the creator and host of their podcast Theatre Feuds! Rob also writes for A Younger Theatre. This is his first show with Tower and he's had such a lovely time.
