    The new Studio in the transformed Perth Theatre has been named in honour of Joan Knight, a past artistic director of the 117-year-old venue.

    Joan Knight, who was artistic director of Perth Theatre from 1968 to 1993, was renowned as a champion for young talent and new playwriting. This commitment will be reflected in the Joan Knight New Commission Fund which will be set up to invest in emerging talent with the Joan Knight Studio as its stage. Donations to the fund are being invited from members of the public.
