Skeleton Crew Cast
Daniel Bonner (Dez)
Daniel has been in a number of plays among other things. He grew up in Detroit and graduated from the Detroit School of Arts. He made his Ixion debut in She Kills Monsters, received a Pulsar nomination for his role in Brokeology and appeared in Welcome to the White Room. He most recently appeared as the intergalactic space terrorist, Adon-Ra in our upcoming "Fight Girl Battle World".
Rose Jangmi Cooper (Faye)
After her theatre debut in Ixion's production of HOODOO LOVE, Rose served as assistant director for several Ixion plays (GIDION’S KNOT, CHALK, WELCOME TO THE WHITE ROOM, FIGHT GIRL BATTLE WORLD) before debuting as director of Ixion’s HOPE in 2019. She followed this with a turn as Othello in The Curtainless Theatre’s THE PLAY’S THE THING, ending 2019 in Riverside Theatre's SWEAT. SKELETON CREW marks her return to Ixion, though she frequently occupies the stage at The Robin Theatre as a spoken-word artist with The Poetry Room. Rose thanks her friends and family for their support - especially her grandson Kevin, who inspires her to be her best self for him.
