Gregory Doran has been described as “one of the great Shakespearians of his generation” (The Sunday Times).

He joined the RSC as an actor in 1987, and became its Artistic Director in 2012. Notable productions include Antony and Cleopatra with Harriet Walter and Patrick Stewart, Hamlet with David Tennant, All’s Well that Ends Well with Judi Dench, and The Tempest with Simon Russell Beale. Greg’s long relationship with his late husband, Antony Sher, produced acclaimed productions of Macbeth, The Winter’s Tale, Henry IV (I&II) and King Lear. Cymbeline in 2023 marked his 50th production for the RSC.

Greg’s latest book My Shakespeare: A Director’s Journey Through the First Folio was published last year and comes out in paperback this summer.
