Multi award-winning British director Jamie Lloyd joins MTC Literary Director Chris Mead in a free public talk about his career and prolific output of intriguing and thrilling productions.
This special event is a rare opportunity to hear from one of Britain’s most sought-after theatre directors, who was named the 20th Most Powerful Person in British Theatre by The Stage in their annual Stage 100 list (2014).
Working alongside a host of stars, Jamie’s recent productions include Doctor Faustus starring Game of Thrones’ Kit Harrington; The Maids with Laura Carmichael and Orange Is the New Black star Uzo Aduba; Richard III with Martin Freeman; Macbeth with James McAvoy; and Sondheim’s Assassins starring Catherine Tate.
Jamie had his big break directing Harold Pinter’s The Caretaker at the Sheffield Crucible in 2006. Two years later he won the Olivier award for Outstanding Achievement in an affiliate theatre for The Pride, and in 2012 he launched his own production company, The Jamie Lloyd Company, in partnership with The Ambassador Theatre Group.
Jamie has also directed work as a part of the Old Vic 24 Hour Plays & Musicals and the Royal Court International Residencies, and was on the panel for the 2015 Kevin Spacey Foundation Theatre Awards. Jamie was Associate Director of the Donmar from 2008 to 2011 and formerly an Associate Artist of Headlong.
