Rachael Williams

Rachael took on the post of Chief Executive Officer in January 2022. She has built a brilliant reputation in the theatre and opera sectors by leading arts organisations that punch above their weight and create thought-provoking and memorable productions.

Since October 2016, Rachael has overseen the growth and expansion of Park Theatre’s activities and team, increasing in-house productions, including sell-out shows like Rosenbaum’s Rescue and the star-studded WhoDunnit [Unrehearsed]; developing and strengthening work with the Finsbury Park community, and nurturing young companies and artists.

Before that, as the first Executive Director at Improbable (2013–2016), Rachael led the theatre company’s return to mid-scale touring with their production of Opening Skinner’s Box and co-productions with English National Opera of Akhnaten by Philip Glass and Mozart’s Così fan tutte.

At Gate Theatre (2009-2013), Rachael was a producer for the original production of George Brant’s haunting and powerful monologue Grounded.
