Sophia Chrisafis
Sophia Chrisafis has been a member of the Tower for several years and first performed on stage with the company in Improbable Fiction last year. She has previously run the lighting for one of our shows and been involved in writing, acting and backstage work with other drama groups around London.
  Thisakya Dias
After a decade long break from participating in theatre, Thisakya Dias joined the Tower Theatre in January 2023 and Homemakers marks her third show. Her credits at the theatre include The Little Prince and Two Billion Beats. Thissy previously cultivated her love of acting from her early years, performing with The Young Theatre Company and the National Youth Theatre, before acting in a number of plays and short films at the University of Warwick, where she studied Politics. The Babysitter won four awards at National Students Drama Festival and went on to complete a full run at the Pleasance Courtyard during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Feiyang Yang
Feiyang Yang has been with the Tower Theatre for nearly two years, coming from no theatre background whatsoever. She has had the chance to learn as many aspects as she wanted over that time, mainly focused on directing. Having assisted three very different plays (Port Authority, Twelfth Night and No Room at the Inn), she directed her first play, Distant Early Warning earlier this year. Feiyang also loves to learn about sound design and has worked on a few plays as sound designer.
  Janet South
Janet South has been a member of the Tower for many years during which she has taken roles both on stage and off. She has been developing her writing over the last six years and has had several of her plays produced by the Tower including Waiting for Grotto which was performed as part of last years' Writers' Room showcase. This year she has taken a darkly comic look at corporate greed, surveillance and workforce exploitation.
