Goodbye Michael Boyd !

So last night Boris Godunov opened , Michael’s last production as Artistic Director and the end of an 18 year relationship with the RSC.

From the first production of Broken Heart in 1994, to becoming an Associate and then the Artistic director in 2003. I have been lucky enough to have worked not just on all his  productions (nearly 30) , but also in the creation of several international residencies in Michigan and New York, and in the design of two new theatre spaces; the Courtyard Theatre and the reconfigured RST.  Here is a list…

Broken Heart

Spanish Tragedy

Much ado about Nothing

Troilus and Cressida

Measure for Measure

Romeo and Juliet

Midsummer Nights Dream

Henry IV parts 1,2&3 , Richard III 2000

The Tempest


Twelfth Night

Pilate project

The Histories: Richard II, Henry IV pts 1&2, Henry V ,Henry VI parts 1,2 &3, Richard 3 .

As you like it

Boris Godunov


not surprisingly i feel both proud and sad that after such a rich body of work we will no longer be collaborating at the RSC , though hopefully there will be new challenges ahead !Tom Piper and Michael Boyd, phot by Ellie Kurttz
