"Thomas Middleton (1580 - 1627) was an English playwright and poet, among the most successful and prolific of the Jacobean playwrights.

Sean Foley is an actor, writer, and director. A double Olivier Awardwinner, he co-wrote and starred in The Play What I Wrote, and Do You Come Here Often?, and his work has eight further Olivier nominations. His most recent work includes the world premiere of The Painkiller, Joe Orton's What The Butler Saw, and the West End hit comedy The Ladykillers. Phil Porter is a playwright. His plays include Blink, Stealing Sweets & Punching People and The Cracks In My Skin, for which he won a Bruntwood Award. His other work for the Royal Shakespeare Company includes original play Here Lies Mary Spindler and edited versions of The Tempest and Pericles."
