Aoife trained at Cambridge University and LAMDA. Recent credits include ‘The 4th Country’ and ‘Good Women’ at VAULTS Festival, and ‘For Services Rendered’ at the Jermyn Street Theatre. She is a writer, actor and Co-Artistic Director of Plain Heroines, a female-led theatre company.
Richard got his first paid acting job in 1985, when £50 a week really WAS £50 a week. He cut his teeth – and got his Equity card – on the small-scale touring circuit with Sheffield’s Compass Theatre Company, where roles included Prospero in The Tempest, Jean in Miss Julie, Mephistopheles in Dr. Faustus and Hamm in Endgame.
He has been freelancing for the last 20 years and has worked at The National Theatre, Sheffield Crucible, Birmingham Rep, West Yorkshire Playhouse, York Theatre Royal, Manchester Library, Bolton Octagon, Dukes Lancaster, Salisbury Playhouse, Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, Richmond Orange Tree and in the West End. He recently toured the UK and Ireland as Estragon in Waiting For Godot. Last year he appeared in series IV of The Last Kingdom for Netflix, premiered Jane Black’s Peggy and Bill at The White Bear and directed a play for the first time – Mary Ann Figtree’s Lost Keys and Orgasms at the Pasty Motel, which won the Audience Favourite Award at the 2019 Camden Fringe Festival.
Richard sings in the bass section of The London International Gospel Choir (internationalgospelchoir.uk), is a proud member of The Scriptreaders (www.thescriptreaders.co.uk) and of Equity, the actors’ union.
