Faith Martin Abongo
Faith Martin Abongo joined the Tower in the earlier part of 2022 and this will be her first stage appearance with the company. She has recently featured in several small roles with popular screen productions.
  Anna Lindén
Anna Lindén is an artist, director and writer working across moving image, photography, and theatre. Her approach to directing is fluid, with an emphasis on physical embodiment, visual opulence and immersive world-building. She joined the Tower Theatre in 2022 and has so far worked as an assistant director and costume designer for Ghost Stories and Our Country’s Good. Tituba will be her theatrical debut as a director and she is excited to explore the play’s rich themes of injustice, truth, and resistance. Her first short film Dreaming the Eye’s Separation was part of the award-winning Made Film History Project in 2021. The film was originally screened at Glasgow Film Festival and will be shown at Whirled Cinema later this year. Anna has written two short films and is currently exploring playwriting with the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, with a focus on creative dramaturgy, whilst also completing her studies of screenwriting at Birkbeck. She is particularly passionate about writing that gives space to complex female characters, which is what drew her to Winsome Pinnock’s work.
