Most people know her for her roles in vintage Kwaw Ansah’s Love Brewed In The African Pot and Heritage Africa, as well as- in recent times- as one of the major characters in Shirley Frimpong Manso’s Adams Apple series. But little do they know that Anima’s first love is the theatre. She is a seasoned playwright whose plays have won the BBC African performance competition a number of times. And in 2004, she served as a judge for the competition
