Advocates: Richard Stacey

As an actor, Richard Stacey worked frequently with Alan Ayckbourn including appearing in the world and New York premieres of the playwright's work.


"Alan has the lightest of touches as a director and creates a great atmosphere so there is plenty of fun. You are aware you are doing something for someone who has an extraordinarily clear vision of what he wants to achieve, but though he knows exactly how it should be, he lets the actors find their way into it so you feel as if you’ve discovered it yourself even though he has guided you to it. It can be intense and you need to focus and work hard but outside of that, you are quite relaxed. He inspires tremendous loyalty."

"He is an extraordinary man. A lot is asked of you and a lot is given to you."
