The cast features up-and-coming actors Lorna Want and Luke Brady as the young lovers, joined by David Burt and Clive Rowe in the roles of the two fathers, as well as Tony Award nominee Edward Petherbridge and Paul Hunter in the roles of Henry and his sidekick Mortimer. The character of El Gallo, around whom much of the twists and turns of the plot revolve, is played by Hadley Fraser. The role of the mute is played by Carl Au.
