Meet The Cast

Meet the cast of Horseshoes for Hand Grenades

(L-R) Daniel Rainford, Evie Guttridge, Malcolm Tomlinson, Mark Rathbone & Robbie Fletcher-Hill

ERT welcomes back to our stage for Horseshoes for Hand Grenades Malcolm Tomlinson and Evie Guttridge.

Evie was highly praised for her first professional role as Maud in The Night Season. Evie went on to capture the hearts of audiences at ERT and across the pond in New Zealand with her inspirational solo performance as Spoonface Steinberg in 2017 and 2018. Earlier this year she appeared in Glory Dazed with Sam Edward-Cooke at ERT.

Malcolm has been much loved by audiences from the day ERT opened its doors when he played the lead role of Scrooge in the theatre’s first show A Christmas Carol. Amongst many more appearances, he captivated audiences last year with his performance as Serge in Art.

Malcolm has recently finished filming a small part in Peaky Blinders.  The new series will be shown during the prime-time slot of 9 pm on Sunday evenings and Poldark will move to the 8 pm slot.  Sundays promise to be an important family day in the Tomlinson household not least because Malcolm's daughter Eleanor Tomlinson has endeared herself to the nation through her role as Demelza.

Joining Evie and Malcolm, ERT brings a plethora of Northern voices to its stage. Mark Rathbone is playing the role of narrator Mr Ward, the blacksmith who works for Lord Stenton on his country estate in the East Riding.

Of returning to his native county of Yorkshire, Mark says:

‘Although the streets aren't paved wi' meat pies, at least you can get a decent cup of tea.’

ERT is always keen to engage and nurture upcoming actors and the roles of the two young men in the play provide the perfect opportunity.

Robbie Fletcher-Hill graduated from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a degree in acting. Robbie has played such roles as Hamlet, Tom (The Accrington Pals), and Sebastian (Twelfth Night).

Daniel Rainford, born and raised in Mansfield, will be playing Andrew’s friend, Julian, and Edward (Lord Stenton’s son). Amongst other roles, Daniel has appeared in the BBC TV series Doctors.
