Dr. ANNI DOMINGO has been named Theatre Peckham’s new Chair.
She succeeds SIOBAN WHITNEY-LOW, who steps down after six years.
An actor, director, author and Shakespeare scholar, Domingo recently directed ILE LA WA at Stratford Circus and The Story of John Archer at Battersea Arts Centre.
She is currently lecturing at St. Mary’s University in Twickenham and Rose Bruford College and directing at RADA and Central School of Speech and Drama.
Theatre Peckham’s CEO and Artistic Director SUZANN McLEAN called Domingo an "inspirational powerhouse".
Domingo said: "There is a genuine feeling of family in this truly multi-cultural venue that is doing so much to open up conversations, nurture young people through its academy and embrace its community."
"I’m here to encourage and to say that you can punch your way through. I want people to stand on my shoulders and to surpass what I have achieved. I rejoice in being able to do that because that means we are progressing."
