Receiving raves for his performance in the leading role of Harry in THE FAMILY REUNION, GREG HICKS, is hailed as one of Britain's finest actors having appeared copiously at the RSC, Royal National Theatre, doing a great deal of work for the Peter Hall Company at the Old Vic as well as on television and film.  Of his performance in THE FAMILY
REUNION, Michael Billington in The Guardian extolled: 
'The evening's chief pleasure lies in the performance by Greg Hicks as Harry. Rarely have I heard an actor so skilfully give formal verse a conversational rhythm by the simple expedient of emphasising the key word in each line.' For a full biography (and a peek at his 22 page resume) please see a website built by his fans here.   

Lynn Farleigh is to London what Uta Hagen is to New York. Lynn's luminous performance as Agatha in Adrian Noble's RSC production of The Family Reunion has been justly celebrated.  At the National Theatre Lynne’s credits, among many, include Machinal, Inadmissible Evidence, The Way South, Inventing a New Colour, The Mysteries, The Orton Diaries, The Crucible, Close of Play and Brand; with the English Shakespeare Company her acclaimed work has included Lady M in Macbeth; Volumnia in Coriolanus and Paulina in The Winter’s Tale. Moreover, Lynn has been rightfully hailed for her work at theatres throughout the UK.  On the box, Lynn is perhaps best known as Helen Wycliffe in Wycliffe, but has also been hugely praised for appearances in Inspector Morse, Casualty, Pride and Prejudice, Finney, Ruth Rendall - Mouse in the Corner; Sweet Nothings, Steptoe and Son and many more credits in all media. Lynn's three LSW sessions have been breathtaking.  For a full account of her last visit in January of 2000 please click here.
