Ruth Sullivan joined the Tower in 2007 and has performed, directed, choreographed and designed sound for many productions. Her most recent shows as an actor include Kindertransport and Frozen. Directing credits include Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, The Sea, The Last Five Years, The Maids, Macbeth and, most recently, King Charles III. As a Foley Artist, her work in TV and film includes Bodyguard, Killing Eve, Breathe, The Death of Stalin, Fearless, Rillington Place, Dickensian, Flowers, Red Dwarf, Downton Abbey, Spooks, Eyes Wide Shut, Mamma Mia!, 28 Days Later and The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, for which she won an Emmy. She also works in the theatre performing live sound effects and has recently been seen - and heard - on the Coliseum stage in Simon McBurney's production of The Magic Flute.
Since joining the Tower in 2002, Ian Hoare has been involved in more than thirty productions, mainly as an actor. His favourite role to date was Hamm in Endgame, and he is delighted to have been cast in a Samuel Beckett play again. Ian has also directed three Tower shows since 2016 - Hindle Wakes, An Enemy of the People and Antigone - and is now working as an Assistant Director on The Canterbury Tales, which you will be able to see at this theatre in July.
Robert Pennant Jones joined the Tower in 1962 and has been involved as an actor or director in around 50 shows. His recent roles include Prospero in King Lear and The Old Man in Doctor Faustus. His last production as Director was his second Waiting for Godot and this production of Happy Days completes his cycle of all Beckett's longer plays at the Tower.
