The Mer­cury Theatre Colchester has an­nounced the ap­point­ment of Katy Grif­fiths and Deb­o­rah Sawyerr as joint deputy ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tors. This au­tumn, Katy, for­mer di­rec­tor of the Corn Ex­change New­bury, and Deb­o­rah, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor for Theatre Royal Strat­ford East, will jointly take on the role of deputy ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor at the Mer­cury Theatre. Both work­ing par­ents, Katy and Deb­o­rah will di­vide the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of the role at this piv­otal time in the Mer­cury’s jour­ney as the theatre pre­pares for a ma­jor cap­i­tal rede­vel­op­ment, Mer­cury Ris­ing.

Katy said: ‘I am de­lighted to be tak­ing on this role along­side Deb­o­rah at such a trans­for­ma­tive time for the Mer­cury and for Colchester. As a work­ing mother, join­ing an or­gan­i­sa­tion which pro­vides flex­i­bil­ity be­cause it un­der­stands the value their ex­pe­ri­ences bring is hugely im­por­tant to me.’
