James Quaife is joining English Touring Theatre as their new producer.

Quaife, who starts work this week, will oversee projects including the company's upcoming co-production with ATG of Tom Stoppard's Arcadia.

He will be working alongside the current production team, led by artistic director Rachel Tackley, executive producer Jane Claire and producer Caroline Dyott.

Tackley said: "We are all over the moon to be working with James, his skills and experience are a huge asset to the company. We have exciting plans for the coming years and can't wait to get started."

Quaife, whose West End credits include Good People and Barking In Essex, responded: "ETT is one of the UK's most successful and exciting production companies and I am thrilled to be working with them. I look forward to producing an electrifying mix of new and classic work for audiences around the UK and overseas."

The ETT's current projects include Twelfth Night, Arcadia and A Mad World My Masters.
