Michael Attenborough on heading the Almeida

21st October 2008



The artistic director of the Almeida Theatre in north London talks to Aleks Sierz about the running of the theatre and previews its upcoming 2009 season, which features a mix of rarely performed classics, better-known plays and new work.

The Almeida is very much an actor’s space – it makes them look good, so I’m constantly looking for plays that are written fabulously for actors.
