Simon read English at St Catharine’s (1994-97) and, whilst at Cambridge, directed many plays. He went on to a successful career as a director, working at Northampton, the Bristol Old Vic and the Royal Court. Last year, he directed Eugene O’Neill’s Strange Interlude at the National Theatre and his production this summer of The Two Gentlemen of Verona at the RSC ’s Stratford-upon-Avon Memorial Theatre (the first in the main house for 30 years) has been widely acclaimed. He returns to the NT next year to direct Shaw’s Man and Superman, with Ralph Fiennes in the lead.
