Who Are Elysium Theatre?
The goal of the Durham-based Elysium Theatre is to bring premieres to the North, as well as develop new plays and other kinds of theatre throughout the region.
Jake Murray was associate artistic director at Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre for several years before becoming co-founder and artistic director of Panache Theatre Company – designed to present classy theatre in stately homes and overseas.
The company launched itself with a staging of Days of Wine and Roses in the Assembly Rooms Theatre in September 2017 and has been going from strength to strength ever since.
