The cast

Jack James lives in Stourport on Severn and has trained in kickboxing and MMA – he can already do the moves. His acting training was at Northampton University School of Acting and he has wide experience from Shakespearean roles to Pornography (the play by Simon Stephens!).

He said: "Walking into Ludlow boxing club for the first time is inspiring. It is an amazing venue and I am really looking forward to performing and boxing for an audience!"

Anya Collyer is really local – from Orleton. She works as a lifeguard at Ludlow Leisure Centre and is very sporty. She trained as an actor at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and has worked for both Pentabus and for Rooftop in The Country Wife at Ludlow Brewery – as the country wife. She is now working on her jabs, crosses, hooks and uppercuts at Ludlow Amateur Boxing Club ready for the performances.

She said: "This production is a brilliant idea and I leapt at the opportunity to be in it. I train in the gym a lot but going down to the boxing club the exercises and discipline are so different and inspiring."

Skye Witney lives in Worcester and has recently graduated with Distinction from the postgraduate acting course at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. She has worked with Rooftop before in Hamlet at Ludlow Brewery in 2016. She is a versatile and engaging actor who can master both the language and the characters of anything from Restoration comedy to modern grunge.

She said: "I have been waiting a few years to work with Rooftop again – and now I get a chance to do some boxing stuff!"
