Anne Odeke

Anne is an Essex based actor and playwright, who most recently worked for The RSC. In 2020, Anne was commissioned by The Queens Theatre Hornchurch to both write and perform a monologue as part of ‘Misfits’. Anne’s piece, ‘The Essex Princess’, was based on the true story of Princess Dinubolu; the first black woman to enter a beauty pageant in the UK. It’s purpose was to make us question why we don’t talk about black Essex history, why it’s rarely been recorded, and what it says to young black people that we don’t speak of those that came before them
