Tom is returning to the Open House Theatre stage after spending much of the last year working behind the scenes for Open House shows, or in front of the microphone reading the news or talking about football for national broadcaster ORF, or his channel "The Other Bundesliga".

Tom was born and raised in the UK, and his acting training was done in Wales and in North Carolina, USA, before he moved over to Vienna to join Open House Theatre in 2014. Since then he's played many memorable roles with us, including Tom in A Glass Menagerie (Williams), John in Brothers of Thunder (Ann Marie di Mambro), and Dr. Watson in Sherlock Holmes: A Study in Scarlet (Conan Doyle / Neumayr). Aside from acting, Tom works as a voice over artist, and also adapted and directed last year's well-received stage version of A Christmas Carol, a challenge which he will undertake once again later this year. He's excited to get the chance to be back on the boards again for Lucy Prebble's intriguing drama first though, before returning to the director's chair at Christmas!

Jessica is a bit of a theatre veteran, having spent most of her adult life working in the theatre in one job or another. As comfortable off stage as on, there are few things she hasn’t done to the keep a show running. She grew up in the South Wales valleys, training in performing arts at a local college. From there she’s had a varied career, highlands include working at the Edinburgh fringe festival as a lighting tech, writing a 30 minute comedy Western version of Shakespeare’s Scottish play, and finally teaching drama to young students. She moved to Vienna in 2016 with her wife Lynda and Geri the African Grey parrot. These days she’s never happier that being surrounded by tech or being in a theatre. If she can do both, its even better. Away from The stage, Jessica works as a aviation journalist and a 3D game asset designer. Jessica is incredibly happy to be working with Open House Theatre on this Production of ‘The Effect’

Robert studied musical theatre at Performing Arts Studios Vienna. After graduating, engagements took him to the Raimund Theater, Theater der Jugend, Opera Graz, Volkstheater and the off-theatre scene in Vienna, Berlin, Munich, Bolzano and Ljubljana. For the past few years he’s been predominantly working as an author and director, and one of his latest directorial endeavours took him to the renowned Volksbühne Berlin. Directing credits include “The Right Job”, “The Turn of the Screw”, “A Christmas Carol”; the Austrian premieres of “The Timekeepers”, “Hypnosis”, “Brothers of Thunder”, and the world premiere of “Hochgeschätztes Tiefparterre”. Robert’s last project was the direction of the European premiere of the off-broadway hit “STRAIGHT” in March/April 2019. He is also Open House Theatre’s Joint Creative Director.

Maria Lohn received her acting training at the Konservatorium der Stadt Wien, as well as at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland through the Erasmus university exchange program and graduated with a BA in Acting.

After returning to Austria she performed at the Dschungel Wien, became an ensemble member of the Wiener Klassenzimmertheater and attended several theatre festivals. Three of her shows were nominated for the Stella Award. One of them won the Jury’s Choice Award at the Domino Theaterfestival Göttingen. Radio, Film and TV credits include: "Acting Up" (BBC Radio Scotland), "Es kann nichts passieren" (Silberne Diana for best short film 2014), "Straight to REM" (shortlisted for the Cannes Short Film Festival). She appears in the ORF TV-series "Altes Geld" by David Schalko as well as in the ORF/ZDF TV-series Soko Kitzbühel and the feature film "Life Guidance" by Ruth Mader.
