Pete Postlethwaite remembered… by Greg Hersov

5th January 2011



Greg Hersov, artistic director of the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester (in tandem with Braham Murray and Sarah Frankcom), pays tribute to the recently deceased actor (1946-2011) with whom he worked on two major productions (The Homecoming and The Tempest). He also recalls earlier encounters both at the Exchange and in Bristol. Interview by Dominic Cavendish.

Over 30 years ago, I was running a fringe company in Bristol. Pete had been doing this amazing work… everyone said, ‘There’s this guy called Pete Postlethwaite and you’ve got to meet him.’
