Meet Harry!

Harry Revell is playing Clive Nugent Harry Revell studied Performing Arts at York College from 2011 to 2014 then went on to study Film Production at the University of Winchester from 2014 to 2017. He has always had a love for performance and entertainment, acting in local productions of the 2012 Mystery Plays and the YSCP production of Duchess of Malfi where he showed his villainous side as the character Ferdinand. Harry has also served  as an Extra on television sets since 2013, and has appeared in the background of such shows as Emmerdale, Peaky Blinders and Ripper Street Harry plays Clive: the only child of Mr and Mrs Nugent. With no real guidance he lacks a moral compass which could explain his seemingly passive attitude to killing animals simply to stitch them back together to make taxidermy models.

Meet Fran!

Frances retired from a high profile career last year and moved back to York with her husband.  After working at a senior level Frances gained vast experience in public speaking and became adept at delivering presentations to a variety of audiences. Upon retirement she fulfilled a long held ambition of joining a drama group and is now an active member of the YSCP.  Last year she was cast in the short-play ‘Slip Sliding Away’ which was her debut performance with the Players. When she’s not acting Frances is a trustee of a local charity and enjoys taking long walks with her dogs. Frances plays an active member of the ensemble, jumping from the role of mourner, shoe, Karen’s mother to a magical, spiritual entity of the magic realm.

Meet Helen!

Leeds born Helen acted with several theatre groups there in diverse roles. The Red Shoes is her second show for Settlement. Helen is a freelance storyteller, who retells ghost stories and folklore. She also loves writing comedies, some of which have appeared at Scriptfactor.  Helen plays the character of Mags. Mags appears a subservient, middle-aged housekeeper bumbling along with poor vision. Though well-intentioned, the road to Hell is paved with such sentiments. At first, Mags seems kind, but she’s like someone wrenching the door from you when you’re struggling to open to it, trapping your fingers in the process! Her motives are loving, yet it remains to be seen whether Mags uses sound judgement. She desires to impart colour into Karen’s life but what will be the consequences? Despite these conflicting aspects, Mags is maternal, magical and more than she seems.
