A weekend in Suffolk at the HighTide Festival is a treat. An even bigger treat? Combining it with this opportunity to chair an event with one of the country’s leading directors, of whom I’ve long been an admirer.
Deborah Warner CBE is an award-winning director working internationally in Theatre and Opera. She has directed work for a number of prestigious theatres including the Royal Shakespeare Company and the English National Opera as well as on the West End and Broadway.
Warner’s work has mainly focused on major classics including critically acclaimed productions of Titus Andronicus, King Lear, The Wasteland and Medea. She enjoys long-term creative collaborations – most notably her partnership with actor Fiona Shaw, resulting in the ground-breaking casting of Shaw as Shakespeare’s Richard II.
Deborah is currently the Cameron Mackintosh Visiting Professor of Contemporary Theatre at Oxford University and is an Associate Artist of the Barbican Theatre.
