Jemima Levick is stepping down from Dundee Rep Theatre to become artistic director and chief executive at Scottish theatre company Stellar Quines.
Levick has been artistic director of Dundee Rep since 2013, and associate director for three years before that.
Stellar Quines was set up in 1993 to celebrate the experience and perspective of women in theatre. Levick takes over at the end of April from Muriel Romanes, who has been AD since 1996 .
Speaking of her appointment, Levick expressed her admiration for Romanes and the women who have contributed to the success of Stellar Quines.
She said: “Stellar Quines is an incredibly important organisation for the Scottish theatre community and beyond.
“At a time when equality and the work of women remain sharply in focus, it is crucial that we have a dedicated organisation that works to promote, support and encourage artists and audiences to broaden our outlook on this agenda.
“I look forward to building on the company’s previous successes, while carving out a new and expansive future that is radical and relevant.”
Dundee Rep said in a statement that it would begin its own search for a new artistic director in the next few weeks.
