Edmonson plays Gary Savage, a one-time Hollywood A-lister playing a guest monster who requires four hours in make-up and who has just one word in the script.

Planer plays Hugh Delavois, one a plodding actor, who has a small but regular role as a butler in the show,

Edmonson and Planer also both wrote and star in the show, with the cast completed by Lois Chimimba who stars as film runner, Leela.

The description of the show says: ‘Sparks fly inside the trailer as old wounds are opened. Leela, a runner, attempts to keep the peace, but outside the trailer things are not going to plan either: the director’s gone AWOL, the catering truck’s on the wrong side of a ravine, and the volcanic activity is growing more lively by the minute…’
