A Dunedin woman has returned home to make her theatre debut.

Lucy Summers was named this week as the new marketing and communications manager at the Fortune Theatre.

Mrs Summers (40) was born in Newfoundland and emigrated to Dunedin with her family when she was 4.

She later worked as a book editor, publisher and charity worker in London, before returning to Dunedin last year, with English husband David and children Will (6) and Charlotte (5).

''I wanted to come back to Dunedin, because it's home and because of the lifestyle here,'' she said yesterday.

''I'm really enjoying it here. It's so creative. It's a fantastic place to work.''

The next play at the Fortune is Lungs, which opens on August 23.
