George Turner is currently studying BA Performance Practice at Central Satin Martin's, London. Previous shows with the Tower include Tom in The Accrington Pals and Peter in After the Dance. Other appearances include roles in Pinning Butterflies, the Open Opera series at the Royal Albert Hall (Central Saint Martin's/London Sinfonietta Orchestra collaboration), Sonic Cinema series (Central Saint Martins) and Flood (National Youth Theatre).
This is Tom Redican's first production with the Tower as an actor, having graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama last year. He's finding it novel to be expected to play characters that aren't several decades older than him. He hopes that his Irish relatives, ancestors and friends won't be too upset by his feckless portrayal of one of their countrymen. He believes the themes of the play resonate as strongly as the day they were written 20 years ago, and hopes this is one of many Tower productions to come!
This is Martin Shaw's fifth show with the Tower Theatre. He played Mr Barkis in the 2012 production of David Copperfield in London and at the Minack Theatre, Cornwall, Tranio in The Taming of the Shrew and Touchstone in As You Like It - both of which toured to Paris. He was last seen as Bernard in Seasons Greetings. He studied Drama at Liverpool University and previous shows include Hamlet, Our Country's Good, The Crucible and recently The Apple Cart for KDC Theatre.
Robert Irvine has been a member of the Tower Theatre for more than 25 years and has performed almost every role in a production other than costumes; those who have seen his dress sense will understand why. Rob's most recent role with the Tower was acting in Travesties. This is the third show Rob has directed, the first being Dying For It and the second being The Kitchen Sink.
