A View from the Bridge, produced by Touring Consortium Theatre Company, is currently touring the UK. Each stop of the tour, the show is joined by people from the local area as part of the ensemble cast. This week the show's in Wolverhampton, let's take a look at who'll be taking to the stage this week with some interesting facts about themselves...
