Gareth Machin has been appointed as Salisbury Playhouse’s new artistic director.
Gareth Machin - currently Studio Associate at the National Theatre, where he is responsible for developing the programme of work for emerging directors, will succeed Philip Wilson who leaves in July.
Machin said: “I am thrilled to be joining Salisbury Playhouse at this fascinating and exciting time for regional theatre. I hope to build on the many successes of recent years, whilst at the same time exploring new ways of engaging with artists and audiences.”
Machin directed Caryl Churchill’s “Three More Sleepless Nights” for the National Theatre in 2009. Prior to his work for the National, Machin was Artistic Director of Southwark Playhouse.
Machin will take up his new post this autumn.
