James Pratt – Director/Producer

Once I really really really wanted to win a Oscar. Once I really really wanted to be in an action movie like Harrison Ford. Once I really wanted to talk in an interview about how lucky I was to know and have worked with Robert Deniro or ‘Bob’ to his friends.
None of that has happened.
Now I have learnt that what I actually love is making things up and showing people a piece of theatre, something they have never seen before.

 

Fi BioFiona Roake – Performer /Producer

Fiona has always been an arts’ mongrel, looking for ways to combine the things she loves – poetry, music, text, dance, the absurd, big ideas – into one true home.
She started out as a ‘straight’ text actor and then discovered clown and melodrama.
She also discovered that she could play the bass guitar, write songs and sing them. She has been lured further and further into music but often makes it back from that frontier to play ‘straight’ in the theatre again, which she loves.

 

Christain bioChristain Bagin

Christian is 190cm tall and swims once a week, runs once a week, and goes to yoga once a week.
He can easily touch his and other peoples toes, and he can hold a head stand for a minute but can’t do the splits because his adductors are really tight.
He has a teaching degree but no one will give him a job teaching so he wasted a lot of years of his life getting that degree and is forced to rely on his acting skills to make money and feed his children. He has two children and they are either 11 and 9 or 12 and 10 years old.
