Oh, come off it, I've only directed three plays for the RSC.
We have cut the text, but what remains are Shakespeare's words.
I was a terrible actor. The analytical part of my mind never quite let go.
I wanted to make the violence beautiful in order to heighten our revulsion.
People come to the theatre to be excited and uplifted - I want to inspire my audience.
We felt that although they were patchy, there was a tremendous political energy in the Henry plays.
It's amazing. I can't believe how brilliant the whole thing is - my daughter, Georgia, is just wonderful.
Shakespeare reveals human nature brilliantly: he shines a light on our instinctive desire to dominate each other.
