PRESS ANNOUNCEMENT Tuesday 16 November 2015
It is with much sadness that Ovalhouse announces the departure of the dynamic double -act that is our Directors of Theatre Rachel Briscoe and Rebecca Atkinson-Lord.

From their very first season, Lady-Led, four years ago, they have built on Ovalhouse's reputation for powerful and original programming, and supported a wealth of new theatre talent through the venue's ongoing work-in-development and commissioning programmes.

Rachel and Rebecca  leave us at the end of the current season, fittingly titled FABULISM - their five-year legacy leaves Ovalhouse fabulously well-placed to embark on the next, exciting new phase in the venue's history, as the Ovalhouse prepares for a major move to Brixton in 2017.
