Anna Barker: “Zoe Jordan”
Graduating from the Mount Royal Theatre program in 2013, Anna has been jumping between stage and film productions. Recent credits include: Hamlet (Shakespeare Company Outreach), James and the Giant Peach (Storybook Theatre), Crimes in the Madhouse (Organized Crime Productions), and Night of the Living Dead (Workshop Theatre). When not in the theatre, you can find Anna singing to herself, having philosophical debates with her dog and reproducing masterpieces through finger painting. Thanks to the cast and crew for making Writers’ Circle breathe the life it deserves and allowing her awkward monster self onto set and into your hearts.
