He's a founding member, primary playwright and stage designer for the British theatre company The Wrestling School. Richard Romagnoli, an associate of The Wrestling School, has previously directed the four Barker plays listed above, along with The Castle, No End of Blame, Gertrude - the Cry, A Hard Heart, and the poems Plevna & Gary the Thief. Robert Emmet Lunney has appeared in six of these productions.

Don't Exaggerate is designed by Courtney Smith, who also serves as online coordinator. Graphic design by Valerie Costello. Production coordinator is Devin Wein. Produced by Cheryl Faraone. Assistant producer is Madeline Ciocci.

After tonight's premiere the stream will be available through the evening of Sunday, October 4 - then it disappears.
