Josephine received immediate assistance from Nottingham Playhouse first aiders and a medically qualified member of the Nine Night audience.  The subsequent very swift arrival of paramedics meant she was quickly and expertly treated but sadly she passed away at the scene.

Chief Executive and Artistic Director of Leeds Playhouse,

James Brining says –

“We are profoundly saddened by Jo’s passing and add our condolences to her family and loved ones. We were truly honoured to work with her on this wonderful co-production of Nine Night and are doing everything we can to support her family, the company and staff across both theatres.”
