Derby Playhouse closes

From Pat Ashworth in The Stage:
Derby Playhouse has gone dark, after the theatre’s board took the decision to place the company in liquidation...

The news comes after last week’s revelation that the venue faced a £300,000 shortfall in expected revenue and needed £70,000 to pull it out of danger of closure. Venue officials blamed the financial problems on disruption caused by the development of the surrounding Westfield shopping centre. Productions staged during that period performed below expectations.
