Our People

Statement From Laura Kriefman and Robin Tatam
(CEO and AD and Chair of Barbican Theatre’s Board).

After a brilliant 4 years in post at the Barbican Theatre, Plymouth Laura Kriefman, our CEO and AD is returning to her artistic practice.


“I have had an extraordinary time in post as CEO and Artistic Director and can not express my gratitude to the Barbican Theatre’s board for their openness and willingness to support our brave vision for redeveloping the organisation over the last 4 years.” Laura Kriefman


“We have had the extraordinary privilege of having Laura as our CEO and Artistic Director for the past great 4 years.” Robin Tatam.


During this time the Barbican Theatre reputation in the city has changed dramatically:


Our youth training which was co-designed by Suzie West and Laura Kriefman, and now brilliantly held by Dulcie Fenton, is having a huge impact on young people's lives and is now being requested by youth centres and schools.


Our larger projects from Petrolheadz, Neon Romance, the Puppet Parades, Live and Local at the Lido and Future Undokai have all helped us reach new audiences, showcase the brilliant talent in Plymouth and create professional opportunities for creatives across the city.
