Sir Richard Eyre
Did You Know?
I did not live near a theatre and it was watching a television production of As You Like It
(1963), starring Vanessa Redgrave
, that gave me my interest in the stage. But young people these days can't do this as the BBC is not doing these sort of plays. I'm not saying the BBC should do classics for their own sake but they must be a part of the mix.
Was twice nominated for Broadway's Tony Award as Best Director (Play): in 1997 for David Hare
's "Skylight" and in 2002 for a revival of Arthur Miller
's "The Crucible."
