Biography

An English director of theater, television, and film, Richard Eyre is also an acclaimed writer and producer. His early career was spent as associate director at the Royal Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh, a post he held from 1967 to 1972. He then went on to become artistic director of Nottingham Playhouse during the '70s before making forays into film and TV. He directed several productions of the "Plays for Today" series, including "Comedians", a work he had previously commissioned while at Nottingham. During the '80s, Eyre directed an acclaimed film version of Ian McEwan's "The Ploughman's Lunch" and continued to work on the stage, winning a Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for his directing in "Guys and Dolls". He achieved breakout success with the 2001 biographical drama "Iris", a film he co-wrote as well as directed. This was followed by an even bigger success, the 2006 thriller "Notes on a Scandal". Based on a Zoe Heller novel, with a screenplay by acclaimed playwright Patrick Marber, the film earned numerous honors and awards for Eyre, including a BAFTA nomination. He continued directing for the stage and won Tony Awards for "Skylight" and his 2002 revival of Arthur Miller's "The Crucible".
