The Cast:


Phyllis Hogan: Irene Christ

Irene Christ is a German actress with over a decade of stage experience, spanning both classic and contemporary female leads. In Malta, she was seen in Fo & Rame’s The Open Couple and played the title role in Ibsens The Lady From the Sea. Her background in professional theatre and her work with well-known directors in cutting-edge productions (among others in Bochum, Düsseldorf and Berlin) is an invaluable asset as co-producer of Actinghouse Productions.
Irene Christ on Phyllis Hogan: "Phyllis has learnt to repress everything that goes wrong around her. She is unable to distinguish between the importance of a plane crash and some smudgy make-up… in other words she is completely crazy."


Bishop Hogan: Alan Paris

Alan Paris is fast establishing his name among the best of Maltese acting talent. Theatre highlights include his roles as the playwright Henry in the MADC production of Stoppard’s The Real Thing, Prince Conti in Teatru Anon’s La Bete and the parts of Adrian and Mushnik which he played in the Masquerade productions Private Eyes and Little Shop of Horrors respectively.
Alan Paris on Fat Men in Skirts: "The first time I read the script it smacked me right in the face. Bishop let me tap into parts of myself that I never knew existed."

Howard Hogan & Dr. Nestor:: Edward Mercieca

The list of TV, film and theatre credits on his acting résumé is impressive. Mercieca’s appearance in fifteen pantomime productions have delighted audiences. Some of the roles he is particularly fond of include Petruchio in The Taming of the Shrew, Robert in Pinter’s Betrayal, and Georges in La Cages Aux Folles.
Edward Mercieca on Fat Men in Skirts: "I love the play because it addresses all the basic human emotions in one story: humour, fear, love, kindness, hatred and violence. It can be as funny as it can be repulsive… and it CAN be repulsive."

Pam & Popo Martin: Pia Zammit

A TV director by day and acting ham by night, Pia Zammit is best known for her roles in musicals such as Rizzo in Grease, Anita in West Side Story, Fraulein Kost in Cabaret, Ronette in Little Shop of Horrors, Bloody Mary in South Pacific. Her fair share of ‘straight’ acting includes most notably The Vagina Monologues, A Chorus of Disapproval and All’s Well That Ends Well.
Pia Zammit on Fat Men in Skirts: "It is a hysterically funny, degenerate and gross play. A bit like myself, in fact!"
