Julia Blyth
Julia Blyth began acting at university, taking part in shows including An Inspector Calls, Cabaret and A Midsummer Night's Dream, then took a super-brief 22 year creative nap before returning to the stage last year as a bright-eyed but somewhat more craggy performer. She has been in productions at the KDC Theatre and is thrilled to be in her second show at the Tower, following Improbable Fiction in November 2022, in which she was a frustrated farmer, swooning Victorian governess, and basic squirrel, but not all at once. Her day job is subtitling live television where she has to watch too much news and too little Strictly.
  Lucy Moss
Lucy Moss is a playwright, director and actor. She was most recently seen in The Boy who Fell into a Book, and before that Nine Night and Mules, all at the Tower Theatre. Online, she played Mother in Vitual Tower's award-winning zoom play adaptation of Metamorphosis, and she created the audio-drama Five Women with Angharad Ormond and Colin Guthrie. She co-wrote The Canterbury Tales adaptation and has appeared in a variety of other shows, including two different productions of The Seagull in 2018, where she played Irina each time. When not on stage, she assists with costume and make-up.
Robert Pennant Jones
Robert Pennant Jones joined the Tower in 1962 and has been involved as an actor or director in around 50 shows. His recent roles include King Lear, Prospero in The Tempest and The Old Man in Doctor Faustus. His directorial debut at the Tower, in 1963, was Waiting for Godot; since then he has directed and/or acted in all of Beckett's major plays. He met Beckett in 1975. His most recent production as Director was Krapp's Last Tape last year. He produced The Genius of Christopher Marlowe for the Rose Theatre Trust with an illustrious cast of classical actors, including five theatrical knights. In 2021 he published his book First ACT Shakespeare.
