Nicholas Hytner: Balancing Acts

Mon 22 May, 6pm
Running Time: 45 minutes approximately

Nicholas Hytner reveals the inside story of his 12 years at the helm of the National. This is a story about actors, writers and directors; about directing new plays like The History Boys and One Man, Two Guvnors; films like The Madness of King George; about probing Shakespeare from every angle and reinventing the classics; and about coming up time and again against the challenge of reconciling art and commerce. With candour, intelligence, humour and insight borne from experience of extraordinary successes and lunatic failures, he explores the biggest questions facing the creative industries right now.

Chaired by Simon Russell Beale.

Live subtitling by STAGETEXT for deaf, deafened and hard-of-hearing people.

Following the talk, Nicholas Hytner will be signing copies of Balancing Acts in the Bookshop.
