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.
He was awarded the 1998 Laurence Olivier
Theatre Award for Best Director of the 1997 season for "King Lear", at the Royal National Theatre: Cottesloe.
