Forbidden to take up acting under the Weapon of Mass Destruction Laws, Dean has been forced to find other outlets for his creative urges. Gaining at least local fame as a magician, Dean sometimes provides warm up performances at our shows as well as wrangling the audiences and convincing them to say the right things in the right places.

Found loitering behind an abandoned bank in the midst of Colchester, Richard has assisted with digital sound effects, performed Foley and recently been allowed to make vocal noises for I Hear Voices. He is also a first rate local bass player, second rate rock DJ and third rate amateur swordsman. He lives somewhere near a train track. He keeps snakes.
After leaving drama school Sara spent years touring the country playing anything from ladies in posh frocks to fluffy animals, Shakespeare to Noddy, from Inverness to The Minack, Cornwall.

She is a storyteller both for children and adults (meaning ghosts and legends). She has an old, blind, toothless dog.
She keeps a budgie.
