The Bradford-born playwright began writing for the theatre in 1995. His most recent work includes his versions of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies for the RSC at the Swan Theatre in 2014, which transferred to London’s West End and Broadway. He returned to the RSC last year with a new version of Robert Harris’s best-selling Cicero novels, entitled Imperium, which was staged as six plays in two performances and opened in November 2017.


Carol Rutter is Professor of Shakespeare and Performance Studies at the University of Warwick and is a National Teaching Fellow. Her books include Clamorous Voices: Shakespeare’s Women Today; Documents of the Rose Playhouse; Enter the Body: Women and Representation on Shakespeare’s Stage; and Shakespeare and Child’s Play: Lost Boys on Stage and Screen.
