Barrie Rutter Overview

Barrie Rutter is an English actor and the founder and Artistic Director of the West Yorkshire Northern Broadsides theatre company. Having studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, he worked with the National Youth Theatre and the RSC in the 1970s. Nominated by John Prescott (then Deputy Prime Minister), in 2000 he won the title 'Creative Briton 2000', along with a cheque for £100,000. Prescott said that "Barrie's northern accent, fast action, factory floor Shakespeare is as far from elitism as can be, though it has never, never dumbed Shakespeare down." In 2003 Barrie Rutter and Stephen Unwin received the Sam Wanamaker Award for their work promoting Shakespeare in the regions. In 2009 Rutter controversially directed comedian Lenny Henry in a production of Othello; after its success, Rutter was invited to direct Richard III in Estonia. He is next performing in A Chorus of Disapproval in West End Theatre The Harold Pinter.
