London’s Soho Theatre has appointed Steve Marmion as its new artistic director.

Marmion, who has been a literary associate at the venue for the last two years, will join the company in July and start working on his first season for 2011. He will replace Lisa Goldman, who is due to leave the theatre at the end of June to pursue other projects.

He will become part of the senior management team at the theatre, which also includes executive director Mark Godfrey and writers’ centre director Nina Steiger.

Marmion was previously an associate director at the Royal Shakespeare Company. He directed Jack and the Beanstalk at the Lyric Hammersmith last Christmas and his family-friendly production of Macbeth will be staged at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre this summer.

Commenting on his appointment, Marmion said: “Throughout my career I have worked across theatrical styles, from new writing to Shakespeare to sketch troupes all the way to pantomime. For me the combination of cutting edge new writing, the best in comedy, the reputation for brave collaboration and a young dynamic audience, makes Soho one of the most exciting venues in British theatre.”

Soho Theatre programmes more than 800 performances a year with a focus on new writing and comedy.
