I try and run theatre so that every show we do does two things. One is it’s got to be a really good show – that’s the most important thing – and it’s got to be a really good show which attracts an audience. But the other thing is it’s got to give somebody, principally the director, but other people as well, the opportunity to do something they haven’t done before, whether it’s the younger director working in a bigger space, with more rehearsal, a bigger company, bigger resources or whether it’s a really distinguished director like, for example, Luc Bondy, who’s an associate here, Luc did his first English language production with us, and so on. Always trying to do something which has never been done before.
Doctor Faustus – 2002
- Now Faustus, what wouldst thou have me do?
Faustus: I charge thee, wait upon me whilst I live, to do whatever Faustus shall command, be it to make the moon drop from her sphere or the ocean overwhelm the world.
- I am a servant to great Lucifer and may not follow thee without his leave.
