NEW JOINT DIRECTORS FOR THE MERCURY THEATRE
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.’
