Sir Trevor Nunn
Did You Know?
[on Michael Jackson's interest in starring as 'Peter Pan'] I described our production, in which all the children's parts had been played by adult actors. He bounded across the room, his eyes full of tears, he knelt down in front of me, his hands on my knees, and he said, 'Could I play Peter, is it too late?'.
He was awarded the 1999 London Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Director for The Merchant of Venice and Summerfolk performed at the Royal National Theatre.
