DARREN KEAY (Scary Actor Three): Darren isn’t afraid of anything. He’s also prone to lying. Earwigs give him the willies and he has an unnatural aversion to the deep-end of swimming pools, as he always imagines a long, black, slimy tentacle squirming out of one of the jet valves and strangling him underwater. Once in a while he gets stage fright. Some occurrences having been during: The Edible Woman (Theatre on the Grand), Walking on Water (New Stages Peterborough); Tourist Trap (Theatre Aquarius), An Inspector Calls (Neptune Theatre).
