Tom Morris is a producer, director, journalist and broadcaster. He was director of BAC from 1995-2004 where he revolutionised the programme and established the venue as a national centre for the development of new theatre, working with companies such as Complicité, Improbable, Ridiculusmus and many others, and nurturing high profile projects such as Jerry Springer: The Opera.
In 2004 he became an Associate Director at the National Theatre and was responsible for the development of some of the NT's greatest successes of recent times, Coram Boy, Tristan and Yseult, and War Horse, which he also co-directed. Throughout his professional career Tom has been closely associated with Britain's most notable visual theatre companies, supporting people and ideas that, in his own words, "turn out to be blooming marvellous a few years later". He has recently been appointed Artistic Director of the Bristol Old Vic.
His talk will cover issues of interest to everyone concerned with contemporary theatre.
