Greg Doran has been described as “one of the supreme Shakespeare directors of our era” (Financial Times) and “one of the finest present day directors of Shakespeare” (Sunday Telegraph). He joined the Royal Shakespeare Company as an actor in 1987 and became its Artistic Director in 2012, stepping down in 2022. He has directed and/or produced every single play in the First Folio of Shakespeare’s plays at Stratford-upon-Avon. His 2012 production of Julius Caesar was described by theatre critic Michael Billington as one the ten best productions in the 60-year history of the RSC and as one of his ten best nights in the theatre ever. Doran delivered the prestigious Richard Dimbleby Lecture on BBC One in 2016. He was awarded the Sam Wanamaker Prize for pioneering work in Shakespearean theatre in 2012 and won a special Olivier Award for outstanding achievement for a season of Jacobean plays in 2002. His writing credits include the book Woza Shakespeare!, co-authored with Antony Sher. He was named as the 30th Cameron Mackintosh Visiting Professor of Contemporary Theatre at Oxford University for the academic year 2023-2024 and, in 2024, he received a knighthood in the New Year’s Honours.
