Dave – Dave definitely considers himself to be the brains of the gang and probably the most beautiful too, supported by his notion that the guys often wear Velcro trainers to avoid laces rather than making an active fashion choice and how females’ eyes dart to the floor to prevent scarring when the gang enter any kind of drinking establishment. Despite an obvious awareness of superiority, Dave is a strong advocator for group-bonding activities. Bring on the stag!
Steve – Since I’m not the best man, I didn’t realise I had to write a poncey speech too, but I guess I can just say this. John, I hope you’re going to be nice to Jane when you’re married because she is properly sound and smells a lot fucking better than you. Can’t wait to get lashed before you have to start behaving!
Terry – Terry is thrilled to be John’s one and only official best man after years of friendship! This is going to be a Stag to remember! Tanya and Terry wish the happy couple all the love and happiness in the world! Welcome to the club! 🙂
Rachel – Rachel is studying media studies and forensic psychology at UEL and this is her first acting experience. “OMG, I was so excited when Kat asked me to do this! I feel just like Julia Roberts and I’m totally speechless. I really don’t know what to say. Break a leg everybody!!”
Sir Michael Bloke (voice only) – Splendidly marvellous to be able to introduce John’s stag to the world. What a splendid example of this marvellous phenomenon of nature, met the producer in the bar, no was it the pub, and she was marvellous one of those good looking chaps you know a woman and she asked me to do this so I finished the whisky and the beers and had two Alka Seltzers and put on the voice.
Jacqui Adams – This is Jacqui’s second time on stage with KDC, after playing Miss Mockridge in 2009’s production of Dangerous Corner; she also directed last year’s Measure for Measure, and contributed to 2011’s new writing collaboration Summers Gone. She’s chuffed to be able to fit in some fun before getting down to the very serious business of directing Neil Labute’s Autobahn for the Sedos Summer Festival.
Brittany Atkins – Somewhere between juggling unemployment with watching re-runs of Come Dine With Me, Brittany is pleased to have found the time and been given the opportunity to display a complete disregard for manners and womanly etiquette in her second performance for KDC. Brittany first performed with KDC, in 2010, in the Penelopiad. She then went on to perform at the Camden Fringe in 2011 for So It Goes… Theatre Company and graduated from RADA Youth Company the same year, and now hopes to make it into drama school.
Aruna Buchanan – Ever the Drama Queen it’s no surprise that Aruna ran away to join the theatre! Highlights include Oscar Wilde’s Salome (Rock Opera) at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and A Clockwork Orange, Anna Karenina and F*ckArt for KDC. Production credits include Buddy, Jailhouse Rock and Blair on Broadway in the West End. Aruna is looking forward to undoing all her mother’s training to be ladylike!
James Edenborough – James has enjoyed acting from an even earlier age and continues to do so whenever not working as a lawyer. Recent work includes Woman Bites Dog’s Martini Bond at the 2012 Camden Fringe then Barking and Manchester, and audio plays for Talk About Productions. Other work includes Rafe in The Knight of The Burning Pestle, Lieutenant Gruber in Allo Allo, and Generals Haig and Von Moltke in Oh What A Lovely War, who fortunately at no point had to be on stage at the same time.
Eddie Register – After roles in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and ‘The Tamer Tamed’, Eddie returns to KDC, to take on his most interesting role to date. This role is quite a departure from Eddie’s previous performances in “Man of Destiny”, “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot” and “Debris”, but he is clearly up to the challenge. Now let’s just hope he doesn’t lose his top !!!
Ami Sawran – Hailing from THE NORTH, this is Ami’s first appearance on a London stage, having brought culture to the masses in Liverpool, Durham and at the Edinburgh fringe. From appearing bald in W;t, profoundly evil in Dr Faustus and downright slutty in Shakers, this is the first time, (despite once playing a wild pig), Ami has really had an excuse to scratch herself and burp freely in public. Whilst she finds this liberating, she would like to apologise to her mum who, for the record, did not condone this behaviour at home. Ami would like to thank those that have influenced her trampy character traits and general manly swagger. You know who you are.
