Fiona Monks is a new member of the Tower. She has played Madame Arkadina in The Seagull and The Actress in The Blue Room as part of her studies at Rose Bruford. She is very much looking forward to playing Margueritte in Edith and Margueritte, her first Tower Theatre production.
Ian Recordon has played a wide variety of roles ranging from Valmont (Les Liaisons Dangereuses), Eddie Carbone (A View from the Bridge), Sir (The Dresser), Ralph Nickleby and Newman Noggs (Nicholas Nickleby), C S Lewis (Shadowlands) and Frank Bryant (Educating Rita) to lighter roles such as Elyiot (Private Lives), Henry Higgins (Pygmalion), Gary Essendine (Present Laughter), Bottom (A Midsummer Night's Dream), Malvoliio (Twelfth Night) and Geoffrey (Stepping out). This year Ian has played W H Auden in The Habit of Art and the Earl of Kent in King Lear in London and Paris.
This is Benjamin Belbin's second appearance with the Tower Theatre Company having played various parts in King Lear earlier this year. Previous theatre appearances included Romeo and Juliet with East London Shakespeare Company and Balm of Gilead playing a down-and-out drug addict. Working mainly in film and television Benjamin has recently appeared in the E4 series Drifters as well as minor roles in feature films such as Fury and Vampire Academy.
