Moving on

Sarah-Jane

Like many arts organisations, The Play House has had some ups and downs over the past few years, so it was with a mixture of excitement and trepidation that I took the job of General Manager six years ago. I was really pleased to be working with a company I had known and admired for many years, but daunted at the challenges of the economic and political climate.

Despite these challenges, the company has managed not just to survive but to thrive. This is a testament to the exceptional quality of the work and the skills and dedication of the people delivering it. The Play House has an important legacy of work going back over 30 years and continues to adapt to changing environments whilst staying true to its ethos and values. No matter how difficult things get, there will always be a demand for intelligent and engaging work for children. The Play House’s unique participatory approach has proved itself to be highly effective in addressing a wide range of issues and stimulating learning across the curriculum.

As I prepare to leave The Play House for my new role at China Plate, we’ve been putting the finishing touches to next year’s programme. The new brochure will be in its way soon and includes some old favourites and some exciting new developments that I’m sorry not to be able to see through. I know that Gavin, Juliet, Malcolm and Simon will continue to do amazing things and I wish them all the very best in the adventures to come.
