Dee Evans, artistic director of the Mercury Theatre in Colchester, is to leave the venue after 14 years in 2012.

She said: “There is never a good time to make a change like this, but the Mercury has a great team and is in a strong position to move into planning and delivering the next three year cycle of work, so I have chosen to make the break now.

“Personally of course, I feel great sadness at leaving and will miss the place and the people very much. I would like to thank all of the thousands of people who have supported us over the years and look forward to seeing a very positive future unfold for the Mercury.”

Evans will leave the theatre in January 2012, and she is currently programming next year’s season up to July.
