Harry Reeder has acted in many plays with the Tower Theatre since his first role as Monty in Chicken Soup with Barley in 1989. His most recent productions were The Winterling (2013) and Farragut North (2015), so Blue/Orange is his first acting role for a little while and he is delighted to be playing Robert.
Blue/Orange marks Chukwudi Onwere's Tower Theatre debut. Theatre credits include Dad in Street Girl (Albany Theatre, Deptford), Dylan in Demolition (Theatre Royal Stratford East), Othello in Othello (Mary Wallace Theatre), Lord William Willoughby in Richard II (St Leonard's Church), Don Antonio in The Rover (New Diorama Theatre), Ensemble in God Save The Teen and Deptford Tales (National Youth Theatre), Paulie in Shedding (Tristan Bates Theatre), Spurio in The Revenger's Tragedy (Putney Arts Theatre), King Charles II in The Libertine and Christopher in Blue/Orange (South London Theatre). TV credit : TV Footballers (BEN Channel). Chukwudi is also a playwright, and is always writing new material. He is looking to revive his London gangster-comedy play Hit Chicks in 2019.

Simon Brooke's background is in screenwriting and script editing, but he has had the occasional dalliance with the world of stand-up comedy. He was in a drama club as a teenager, and after a very long gap he joined the Tower in 2017, appearing in Nell Gwynn last December.
Colette Dockery has been a member of the Tower since 1990. Starting as an actor, she first directed around 15 years ago. Some previous productions include Oleanna, Mojo, The Slab Boys, The Vortex, Two and The Woman who Cooked her Husband.
