Patrick Bergamo

"I am an Italian/Scottish actor, born in Florence and living in the UK for the last nine years. I trained in acting at the Edinburgh Telford College, since when I have been in various short films, a feature film set in Preston, The Blackout, and a play, Nel mentre di specchi, which had a three week run in Florence. I have also appeared in the Amazon tv series Mozart in the Jungle. I am a very sportive person; I enjoy playing football, climbing and swimming. But most of all I enjoy the sun:-)"

Martin Foreman

Setting aside short-lived and embarrassing forays in his youth, Martin's involvement in theatre began with acting courses in 2011. These led to various roles in fringe theatre in London before he returned to Edinburgh in 2014. Although he still acts occasionally, he devotes more time to playwriting and directing. This has led to several successes at the Fringe, including a trilogy of one-man plays, Desire and Pursuit, in 2014, J B Priestley's The Rose and Crown in 2106 and Volpone in 2017. As a playwright he won the 2012 London Solo Festival New Writing Award and the 2018 Pitlochry Festival Theatre Short Play Award. He is also the author of two novels and two short story collections.

Rosa has worked in theatre in Bristol and Hebden Bridge. She has recently moved to Edinburgh and is looking forward to getting involved in a new project in the world's biggest drama festival.
