There are several Secondary Characters who will be cast from ‘additional company members’ and roles doubled: Sanderson, the Inspector, the Police Doctor, Hotel Porter, Surgical Students, Hotel Maid.

All roles will involve a strong onstage component: crowds, dead bodies, moving furniture-props across a speeding revolve, spreading Gothic fog.
