It is with profound sadness that we must announce that our beloved Co-founder and Artistic Director Robert Farley passed away unexpectedly on Thursday November 30th.
Dear Friends of Georgia Ensemble Theatre,
Today we write to you with heavy hearts to share some very sad news. Our co-founder and artistic director, Bob Farley, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday morning, November 30. All of us are stunned and grieving. You are all our family, so we wanted to reach out to tell you about this loss. Of course, we feel especially deeply for Bob's partner in all things, his wife Anita, and for his children and grandchildren--Laurel, Sean, William, Finley, Heather, Michael, Clara, and Sadie.
Plans for memorial services are noted below.
Bob was a passionate leader, a committed artist, a person of many talents and interests, and most importantly, a much-beloved husband, father, and grandfather. He kept his hands on the reins and his shoulder to the wheel for 25 years at GET, and at the Alliance Theatre and Alaska Repertory Theatre before that. His leadership and influence were truly something special.
We hope that all of you will join with us in celebrating the life of this remarkable man who touched so many and made such a difference to us all. At this time, the Farley family would appreciate some time to grieve privately.
Thank you for your support and care.
