Trevor Nunn Career


Nunn joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1964 and was appointed Artistic Director of the RSC in 1968, a post he held until 1986 (latterly with Terry Hands from 1978).

Janet Suzman, his first wife, appeared in several of his films, including the 1974 televised version of Antony and Cleopatra. In 1976, Nunn directed Macbeth's RSC production starring Ian McKellen in the title role and Dame Judi Dench as Lady Macbeth. Nunn staged the performance with not only the paying audience but also the audience of all of the actors in the production that was not on the show — they sat on wooden crates just outside the main playing area.

Nunn became a leading figure in dramatic circles, co-directed by John Caird and co-directed by Richard Caird, and was involved in several major productions, including the RSC's adaptation of Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors in 1976.

Nunn, the first English director of musicals and the first to be in London since opening, was a very popular director of musicals in the non-subsidized market. At Windsor Castle, Nunn also supervised the little-known 1986 Webber-Rice musical Cricket. Starlight Express and Sunset Boulevard are among Cats and Les Misérables Nunn's other musical credits. In September 1997, he became the Artistic Director of the Royal National Theatre, a post he held until 2003.

Later in London, My Fair Lady, South Pacific (at the Royal National Theatre), The Woman in White, Othello, and Acorn Antiques: The Musical! The Royal Hunt of the Sun, Rock 'n' Roll, Porgy and Bess performed in 2006 at the Savoy Theatre (an abridged version with dialogue rather than recitatives, unlike Nunn's first performance of the opera).

In 2004, he directed We Happy Few, a play by his second wife Imogen Stubbs. Stubbs appears in his films, including the 1996 Twelfth Night film. In 2004, Nunn staged a modern interpretation of Shakespeare's Hamlet, starring Ben Whishaw as the title role and Imogen Stubbs as Gertrude, and the Old Vic Theatre in London staged Imogen Stubbs as Gertrude.

He supervised King Lear and The Seagull's RSC productions in 2007, which appeared in Stratford before embarking on a world tour (including the Brooklyn Academy of Music) and then appearing at the New London Theatre in November 2007. Both Ian McKellen, Romola Garai, Frances Barber, Sylvester McCoy, and William Gaunt appeared in Ian McKellen, Romola Garai, and William Gaunt. On Boxing Day, 2008, Nunn's television adaptation of King Lear starring McKellen was shown.

He returned to The Belgrade Theatre in Coventry (the theatre where he began his career) in 2008 to direct Joanna Murray-Smith's production of Ingmar Bergman's film Scenes from a Marriage starring Imogen Stubbs and Iain Glen. His musical interpretation of Gone with the Wind opened at the New London Theatre in April 2008, but after poor reviews, it closed on June 14, 2008, after 79 performances. He directed a revival of A Little Night Music at the Menier Chocolate Factory in December 2008, which later transferred to the West End at the Garrick Theatre in 2009. Desiree Armfeldt and Angela Lansbury were the leading female actors in the Broadway show. Other cast members of the original London cast also performed with the company. After 425 performances, the production came to a close in January 2011.

Nunn's latest version of The Man and the Birdsong Musical Aspects of Love, which opened in September 2010 at the Menier Chocolate Factory and the Play Birdsong, based on Sebastian Faulks' book of the same name.

With a revival of Flare Path (part of the playwright, Terence Rattigan's centennial year celebrations), Nunn made his debut as Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal, Haymarket. Sienna Miller, James Purefoy, and Sheridan Smith appeared in March 2011 and closed in June 2011, followed by Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (June – October 2011), starring Ralph Fiennes. Joanna Lumley and Robert Lindsay appeared in his last performance at the Haymarket, The Lion in Winter (November 2011 – January 2012), starring Joanna Lumley and Robert Lindsay.

Nunn directed the play Fatal Attraction in the Haymarket in 2014.

Nunn produced Fiddler on the Roof at the Menier Chocolate Factory in December 2018, before transferring to the Playhouse Theatre in London's West End for a limited season in spring 2019. Andy Nyman appeared as Tevye and Judy Kuhn as Golde in the film.

In 2020, he was supposed to direct a new musical Identical based on The Parent Trap. It was scheduled to be its world premiere at the Nottingham Playhouse before transferring to the Theatre Royal, Bath in the summer of 2020. However, production has been postponed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom.

Nunn has conducted operas at Glyndebourne. In 1993, he revived his highly praised Glyndebourne production of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, which was highly praised.

Lady Jane (1986), Hedda, Hedda Gabler's adaptation, and a 1996 film version of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night were among his film scripts.


Did Logan Roy die in Succession? Despite his dramatic funeral, no one saw the tyrant's face his maker. According to the man who plays him, perhaps he should get his own spin-off show - a very mischievous Brian Cox, September 15, 2023

ALISON BOSHOFF: Despite being cleared of all criminal charges last month, Kevin Spacey is shunned by his pals. Could he leave London for a new life in Paris?, August 10, 2023
ALISON BOSHOFF: Kevin Spacey, a double-winner, enjoyed alcohol at the Groucho Club and later a dinner with dramatic titan Trevor Nunn as he was cleared of criminal charges last month. However, it has been discovered that many of his peers who lionised Spacey while he was artistic director of the Old Vic from 2004 to 2015 have now distanced themselves from the actor, who claimed that he was simply a 'big flirt' (an explanation that the jury has accepted).

Kevin Spacey plots his big theatre comeback: Oscar winning actor 'toasted' his court win and 'discussed redemption' over dinner with director Trevor Nunn in Mayfair restaurant, August 2, 2023
After years in the wilderness, the Hollywood actor (left) was cleared of all charges in his sexual assault trial last week and is hoping to resurrect his acting career. Spacey was seen dining at the Colony Grill Room in Mayfair, where the a la carte menu includes a £480 bottle of fizz, while the most expensive bottle of fizz is a 2014 Louis Roederer Cristal, costing £390. According to The Fence magazine, the twosome began their meeting on Monday night with champagne, 'toasting his recent courtroom triumphs.' They are now said to have discussed the possibility of Spacey's operation as the artistic director of London's Old Vic.
