Cut and pasted from an email from the RSC:
We have announced that Gregory Doran is to be our next Artistic Director.
Gregory has played a hugely important role in the life of the Company, from his earliest days as an actor with us to his current role as Chief Associate Director.
RSC Chairman Nigel Hugill said: "His long history with the Company is testament to his great skill as a director, his deep understanding of Shakespeare and a true commitment to theatre-making."
Gregory Doran said: "I am delighted to be appointed as Artistic Director of this great company. I joined the RSC 25 years ago, first as an actor, then as assistant director and then Chief Associate, so I guess if my appointment represents something, it represents a long term commitment to the disciplines and craftsmanship required to do the astonishing plays of our 'Star of Poets', William Shakespeare.”
