Kiln Theatre announces new executive director Daisy Heath
She joins Indhu Rubasingham to lead the newly renamed venue
Kiln Theatre has announced its new executive director will be Daisy Heath.
Heath joins the venue from the Young Vic where she has been lead producer there since 2011. She takes over from Bridget Kalloushi, who leaves the theatre following six years as executive producer.
Heath said today: "I am over the moon to be joining Kiln Theatre at this brilliantly exciting time for the company, with its beautiful and newly re-opened building, outstanding team and a mission to make theatre for everyone. "
Artistic director Indhu Rubasingham commented: "On meeting Daisy, we knew what a brilliant appointment she would be for the company. Not only does she bring a wealth of experience, having worked across the subsidised theatre sector for most of her varied career, but her enthusiasm and ambition for the company are just the right energy as we explore the possibilities of the new building."
At the Young Vic, Heath has produced all the main house productions including most recently Kwame Kwei-Armah's first production Twelfth Night, Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori's Fun Home and the world première of Matthew Lopez's The Inheritance currently running at the Noël Coward Theatre.
