Evans of Somerville as Morris Dixon; Sachin Ahuja of Millstone as Jugo Lyppiatt; Melissa Rittmann of Ewing as Joanna Lyppiatt and Ruth Markoe of Lawrenceville as Lady Saltburn.

Directed by Rob Lasky, the production team includes Stage Manager and Props Jenny Duncan, Assistant Stage Manager Aaron Jelinek, Set Design/Construction John Maurer, Sound Design/Operator Eric Collins, Costumes by Rittzy Productions and Lighting by Jordyn David.
