Personal Quote:

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. See more »

Trivia:

He was nominated for a 1997 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Director of 1996 for "John Gabriel Borkman". See more »
