Gregory Doran

Artistic director Royal Shakespeare Company

Gregory Doran is the current artistic director of the RSC. He established his own theatre company whilst at university and put on Shakespeare productions. It was in 1987 that Doran began his career with the RSC as an actor, progressing up the ranks to associate director in 1996. In 2002, Doran won an Olivier Award for Special Achievement. On what inspired him, he says “sincerely, I found Shakespeare my greatest inspiration. Not only did he give me the words for “what oft was thought be ne'er so well expressed”; but he described a 360 degree perspective view on what it was to be human. He gave me a passport through my life.” He is hoping to stage every play that Shakespeare wrote over the next six years of his tenure.
