Jeremy Herrin is Associate Director at The Royal Court Theatre. Actors worked with Jeremy for 10 weeks. Each session was dedicated to a contemporary text or new play in development.
Actors had the opportunity to work in partnership with the playwright and director in workshopping new plays and exploring the role of the actor in script development and redrafting. Guest directors included Natalie Ibu and Lorne Campbell.
Jeremy Herrin trained as a theatre director at both the Royal Court and the National Theatre. In 2007, he directed the UK premiere of David Hare’s play The Vertical Hour, as well as Polly Stenham’s award-winning That Face at the Royal Court. That Face later transferred to London’s West End, where it starred Lindsay Duncan and Matt Smith. Two years later, in 2009, Jeremy directed Polly’s second play, Tusk, Tusk, which opened at the Royal Court Upstairs to critical acclaim.
