Having previously worked as an actress, Mumba is now a Theatre Director based in London. After completely the Young Vic Intro to Directing Course she's turned her focus on to challenging  stereotypes, narrative and stories of those who are not usually seen in theatre. As well making sure when these stories are shared that they are done with integrity and sensitivity. Mumba has recently directed Black Ice by Atlanta Green Theatre503 and a rehearsed reading of Tales From The Garden by Ameera Conrad at the Tristan Bates Theatre as a part of the Blacktress Season.
