Nikolai Foster talks about directing theatre

Following on from last week's in-depth interview with Colin Richmond, the designer of Beautiful Thing, this week we are delighted to release our interview with director Nikolai Foster, who discusses his 2013 revival of Jonathan Harvey's groundbreaking 1993 play.

Nikolai reveals how his time in drama school shaped his interest in becoming a director, working under celebrated director Michael Grandage, and living up to the expectations of an audience for whom Beautiful Thing was an important part of their adolescence.
