Artistic directors Cecilia Darker and Cleo Sylvestre step down after 20 years of running the award-winning Rosemary Branch Theatre in London.


Genevieve Taricco and Scarlett Plouviez Comnas of interactive performance company Unattended Items named as their successors


Quote from Cecilia Darker: ‘It's been an action-packed 20 years and we are terribly proud of playing  a small part in so many marvellous productions and performances. But there are other things in our lives that now need our attention, and having known Scarlett Plouviez Comnas since she joined us as an intern during her university years, we just knew that if she felt it was the right thing for her to be doing, that we would be passing the theatre into very safe hands.  Luckily Scarlett felt this was the right project for her and her co-director Genevieve to get their teeth into. They are both passionate about the part theatre has to play in contemporary society and are bursting with ideas. We look forward to watching them breathe their own life into The Rosie and we have every confidence that their ethos and practical skills will continue to move it forward and retain its name as one of the best little theatres in north London.’


2016 marks the 20 year anniversary of Cecilia Darker and Cleo Sylvestre as artistic directors of the Rosemary Branch Theatre. After two decades of extraordinary and committed stewardship, they have now both decided to take a back seat in order to pursue new adventures. Interactive performance company Unattended Items take over as resident company from mid-June 2016, led by artistic directors Genevieve Taricco and Scarlett Plouviez Comnas.
