Purni Morell steps down as Unicorn artistic director

Purni Morell is stepping down next year as artistic director of the Unicorn Theatre, it has been announced.

Morell, who has been in post since 2011, has helped to raise the profile of young people's theatre during her tenure, which has seen the venue's work win a range of awards. 

She said: "I am incredibly proud to have been a part of this extraordinary theatre and of what we have been able to do here - it has been rewarding, exciting and challenging in equal measure. 

"It's so easy to sell the next generation short and it's so important not to – so I'm enormously excited to see where the next artistic director will take the theatre and to enjoy many more years of watching great shows, this time as a ticket-buyer."

She will step down in April. Her successor is yet to be appointed.
