In 2019 it was announced that Linton would become the artistic director of The Bush Theatre. Linton's appointment has been celebrated by the UK theatrical community, which is dominated by white men. When asked about the reason she applied for the job she quoted James Baldwin, "The place in which I’ll fit will not exist until I make it". She hopes to make the theatre more welcoming to traditionally minoritized groups, including people of colour and those from working class backgrounds. Her first season as Artistic Director started with a revival of Jackie Kay's Chiaroscuro and several other works by British writers of colour. The Evening Standard remarked that in terms of "sheer emotional power", nothing came close to Linton's Chiaroscuro.
She was selected as one of the Marie Claire Future Shapers in 2019. She was named as one of London's most influential people in the Evening Standard's Progress List.
In 2016 she was appointed as Assistant Director at the Gate Theatre. Linton directed Lynn Nottage's play Sweat at the Donmar Warehouse in 2018. The success of the production, which starred Clare Perkins, Martha Plimpton, Osy Ikhile and Parick Gibson, resulted in it transferring to the Gielgud Theatre in 2019. It was awarded the 2019 Evening Standard Play of the Year award. Her production of Richard II was the first ever all women of colour company performing a Shakespeare play on a UK stage.
In 2014 Linton founded the production company Black Apron Entertainment, which was named after the uniforms worn by her and her colleagues Daniel Bailey and Gino Green at their first jobs in John Lewis. Black Apron Entertainment have produced several plays and short films, including Passages: A Windrush Celebration at the Royal Court Theatre. Passages included seven monologue films that were written in response to the Windrush scandal.
Linton is of British Caribbean heritage and grew up in Leytonstone, East London. Her father is from Guyana and her mother is from Northern Ireland.

Here she met Rikki Beadle-Blair, who encouraged her to write a play. The play she wrote – Step – was about a young man working out his sexuality, inspired by James Baldwin. It was programmed at the Theatre Royal Stratford East. Her writing explores who she is and where her family are from. She trained as a Director at StoneCrabs in 2013.
