The Bush Theatre has announced the appointment of Daniel Bailey as Associate Director with immediate effect. Bailey replaces Omar Elerian who has held the position since 2012.

Daniel will work alongside the Bush Theatre’s new Artistic Director Lynette Linton. He is currently Associate Director at Birmingham Repertory Theatre, originally joining The REP as part of the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme and where his work has included Blue/Orange, Concubine, Stuff, I Knew You, Abuelo, Jump! We’ll Catch You, Made In India/Britain and Exhale.

He has previously been Resident Director at the National Theatre Studio, Associate Artist at Stratford Royal East and Resident Assistant Director at The Finborough Theatre.

Daniel studied Modern Drama at Brunel University before participating in the Young Vic’s Introduction to Directing and he has since started a theatre company New Heritage Theatre that works with new writers and theatre makers to produce unheard voices and thought provoking work for all audiences.

Daniel Bailey said today ‘I’m excited about starting this new adventure at the Bush, seeing in this new era with Lynette, and being part of the Bush family. As a West Londoner it’s good to be back home!’

Lynette Linton said ‘This is a very exciting announcement for the Bush Theatre. Daniel Bailey is an exceptional artist and I’ve been a fan of his work a long time. I’m very much looking forward to working with him as we shape our first season and beyond. Welcome to the fam Daniel. ‘

Bailey is to be joined by a second Associate Director who will be announced later in the year.
