RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Broadway

In the renowned actress's first foray into playwriting, family reminiscences develop into a complex, funny, and moving portrait of a child's longing for the love of the inscrutable, daunting, and charismatic Shakespearean actor who was her father. Acclaimed in America and Great Britain, Shakespeare for My Father weaves scenes from the Bard that delightfully coalesce with events in Ms. Redgrave's young life, eliciting memories of Sir Michael and engaging impressions of the celebrated stars who frequented the Redgrave's home and lives.

REVIEWS

"A pleasure and a privilege to watch." - The New York Times

"An enormously entertaining biographical voyage." - New York Post

"Combines wit, technical skill and human feeling [...] the evening is sometimes heart churning, but laughter is never far away." - The London Times

"An original, funny, often fascinating [...] blend of art and psychotherapy." - Time

"Offers a glimpse of life in the rarefied company of Olivier, Burton, Lunt and Fontanne, sister Vanessa and brother Corin [...] by turns funny, poignant and melodramatic." - Variety


Shakespeare for my Father premiered at the Helen Hayes Theater in New York City in April 1993 under the direction of John Clark.
