Theatre Scotland Appoints Co-Editor

Theatre Scotland are proud to announce the appointment of Rebecca Donati as our co-editor. Rebecca has been with Theatre Scotland since early 2020 as a contributing critic. Since then, although there have not been many reviewing opportunities, Rebecca has been a proud supporter of the site and has been behind some of the content Theatre Scotland has produced through lockdown. 

Rebecca is about to graduate Queen Margaret University’s BA (Hons) Drama and Performance course, hopping out into the industry as an aspiring director, actress and writer, known for her contemporary outlook and perfectionist attitude.  

Rebecca will bring a creative outlook to Theatre Scotland, making this not only a hub for Scottish theatre audiences, but also Scottish performers and creatives. Rebecca will be working with our editor (Lewis) on developing content and projects which stimulate members of the Scottish theatre industry. This includes launching a new section of the site dedicated to helping industry professionals. This section will feature job opportunities, workshop opportunities with news and opinion articles on issues facing members of the industry. This new programme will be launched in the summer. 

In the meanwhile, Rebecca will be bringing exciting new insights to our followers and helping develop our site, ready for Theatre Scotland to jump head first into theatre reviews once our industry re-opens. 

Rebecca had this to say in regards to her new position: 

“I feel very excited to be appointed as Theatre Scotland’s Co-Editor. I have followed the work of Theatre Scotland since it was first established. I have watched the site grow and develop into the professional platform that it is now. I look forward to bringing a new perspective to the site and to use my voice to bring new ideas to elements of the platform. This is the best place to hear all the latest Scottish theatre news and accurate reviews. I am honored to be assisting in leading the team.” 

Our editor, Lewis had this to say in regards to Rebecca being appointed as co-editor: 

“Rebecca is the hardest worker I know. Having worked with her on creative projects previously, I am delighted she applied for the Co-Editor position. Furthermore, the ideas she has for Theatre Scotland already, are truly exciting and I cannot wait for us to make them reality. The applications we received for this position were very impressive, however, Rebecca’s ideas are ones which will help us continue to build our platform into one of the best theatre review sites in Scotland.” 

As well as Rebecca’s appointment, Theatre Scotland are also pleased to welcome Aisling Anderson to the team as a contributing critic/columnist.
