Meet our highly-acclaimed and multi-talented cast

Including: Bruce J Little, Tessa Jubber, John Herbert, Errol Ballantine, David C Steyn, Werner Botes, and Francois Coertze, with Dawid Minnaar as Captain Nel.

The cast of this powerful production comprises both seasoned veterans and promising newcomers. In a deliberate effort to ensure authenticity, Hendrik Baird, who is also a co-producer of this project, sought to cast gay-identifying actors in key roles portraying gay characters. He underscores the significance of honouring Thomas' narrative by authentically representing his journey through the voices of those who share similar identities and experiences, and says, I am truly awed by the eagerness of big-name actors to sign up for this audio drama podcast.
