We're thrilled to announce the cast for Bystanders - our new show that tells stories of the lives and deaths of homeless people, written and directed by our Artistic Director Adrian Jackson. Featuring a great mix of faces familiar to Cardboard Citizens and those new to the company, our cast will be at Summerhall throughout the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (31 July to 25 August).

The cast consists of:
We've worked with Jake almost since the beginning of Cardboard Citizens in many productions, including Mincemeat, Visible, Woyzeck, and lots more. He is a street theatre and cabaret performer, a visiting lecturer at the National Centre for Circus Arts, and founded two performance companies - Other Half Productions and JustPlay.
Libby has created three plays - Muvvahood, Temporary, and Fighter - and has experience across TV and Theatre. She's also an Associate Artist at Stratford Circus.
Mark has much experience as an actor, and previously performed with Cardboard Citizens in Benefit.
Andre is a Cardboard Citizens veteran, having performed in Citz projects including Glasshouse, Home Truths and Rising. He's also worked with Bread & Roses Theatre, Paper Tiger, and the BBC.
We're also delighted to be working with an amazing creative team, including Carla Goodman (Design), Sarah Readman (Lighting/Video), Liz Ranken (Movement), Arun Ghosh (Music/Sound), Sarah Woods (Dramaturg), River (Assistant Director), Crin Claxton (Production Management), and Jasmin Hay (Company Stage Manager).
