Hello, I’m Robert Richmond.
I’m a professional director originally from Hastings, England. Now based in the US, I direct productions all over the country and am best known for my updated takes on all things Shakespeare. My mission is to create theatre that will sustain and transform the twenty-first century, revitalize audiences, and reward them for their patronage.
You may have seen my productions more recently at the Folger Theatre in Washington, DC or from my time as the Associate Artistic Director of the Aquilla Company in New York City. Currently, I also serve as the Department Chair and Artistic Director of the University of South Carolina Department of Theatre and Dance.
