Buck Mailer joined the company unexpectedly while it was touring Bosanova. A talented actor, with a habit for upsetting people, Buck Mailer died on stage - literally - killed by the safety curtain.
Now playing corpse - Victim
Director of the theatre company who is renowned for producing great plays.
He started working in the theatre while completing National Service in the army.
One of his greatest achievements was directing the veteran actor Sir James Gillymott, and his daughter Margot, in a Richard D'ling play. He later married Margot.
Married to the director, Montague DeVere, it is not surprising Margot is an actor as she is the daughter of world famous actor Sir James Gillymott. Acting is in her blood, with the Gillymotts being the royalty of the theatre.
Margot has the grace, the charm, the elegance of a princess. On stage she has a commanding presence, that can overshadow lesser actors.
Constance, or Conney, has been with the theatre company for some time. As theatre manager she arranges all the company's tours. When three of the show's performers left suddenly during the recent tour, Conney managed to find replacements at short notice. She is very good at fixing things.
Known for playing delicate damsel roles, Veracity nearly always plays a naive heroine.
She has been acting all her life and often receives rave reviews.
One of her little foibles is that she is very superstitious.
Martha joined the theatre company on its recent tour of Bosanova. Although unknown outside Bosanova she has quite a reputation within the country.
A great character actor, the role of maid in the new production does not do justice to her charm and sophistication.
A smooth sophisticated character both on and off stage.
This has not always been the case. Warren started out as Mr. Supersuds in a long running series of television adverts. Known as the bespectacled superhero who wore his pants on the outside because they were so clean, he battled the agents of filth armed only with an economy pack and a sincere smile.
Warren was in Montague's squad while completing National Service in the army.

You are a female impersonator who joined the theatre company during a recent tour of Bosanova. You were a great success and now find yourself in great demand for the celebrity circuit, chatshows, daytime TV, etc. So far you have resisted all these offers preferring to concentrate on the theatre.
Under the mascara and blusher your chiselled good looks could turn a woman head. Your wardrobe could also turn heads.
