Liverpool’s Unity Theatre has appointed Matthew Linley artistic director and chief executive officer.

He succeeds Graeme Phillips, who has guided Unity for the last 34 years and maintained its tradition of staging radical but accessible work that stretches back to the 1930s.

Matthew is currently general manager with Eastern Angles—an acclaimed touring theatre company based in Ipswich. He has previously led venues in Leicester, Reading and Bath.
