THE sudden death of Dundee Rep Ensemble member Robert Paterson has resulted in the cancellation of a number of performances of the Ensemble’s production of The Tempest.

A spokesperson for the theatre said: “It is with the deepest sadness that we must confirm the passing of Robert Paterson of the Dundee Rep Ensemble. Robert was an institution at the Rep appearing in over 50 Rep Ensemble productions. We are shocked and devastated with the news. Our thoughts and sympathy are with his family at this desperately sad time.”

Performances will re-start this Thursday with evening performance on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7.30 pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30 pm.
