Bill began his career at the Bristol Old Vic and joined the RSC in 1977 where he was Resident and then Associate Director until 1992. He was Artistic Director of the #BirminghamRep between 1992 and 2001. Having directed ‘The Merchant of Venice’ four times (RSC, Birmingham Rep, #LAMDA and #BristolOldVicTheatreSchool) it has become, by his own admission, an obsession with him.
Acting students from #DramaStudioLondon will assist Bill in the masterclass, which will focus on themes within the play. We welcome anyone to the Masterclass who has either a love of and interest in Shakespeare or who is simply curious to know more and see a master of his profession at work!
We can also announce that Bill's adaptation, a 90-minute, modern dress version, ‘A Merchant of Venice’, will be performed at the Playground Theatre in September. This is a new production by Shakespeare in Italy (incorporating Sharing Shakespeare)
