Adam Cook to leave State Theatre Company

by Jane

Minister for the arts John Hill has broken the news via twitter that Adam Cook, artistic director of the State Theatre Company of South Australia, has resigned after eight years in the top job. With the company shortly about to announce a new CEO after Pamela Foulkes announced her resignation towards the end of last year, this could lead to a huge shake up of the highest funded theatre company in the state.

This also calls into question the interesting timing of Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton announcing they won’t be extending their term at the Sydney Theatre Company. Is there a move to Adelaide in their future?
