Annual Review Published by London's National Theatre

News   Annual Review Published by London's National Theatre The National Theatre's Annual Review for the year 2002-2003 has been published, and in a press conference held at the boardroom of the NT on September 24, Nicholas Hytner (along with outgoing Chairman of the Board Christopher Hogg) spoke to an invited audience of theatre journalists.

To summarize the report itself, Trevor Nunn, the former director of the NT, whose last year this report covers, expresses his pleasure that the year saw the highly successful Transformation season and a record-breaking ten Olivier Awards.

During the year covered by the review, 22 new plays were produced in four auditoria, by authors as established as Sir Tom Stoppard and as up-and coming as Gregory (Gagarin's Way) Burke.

Among the productions staged at the National during this period were Nicholas Wright's Vincent in Brixton, Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire, Shakespeare's Love's Labour Lost, Cole Porter's Anything Goes, Joanna Murray Smith's Honour and Matthew Bourne's Play without Words.

Saying farewell to the National, Sir Trevor quoted King Lear, where Gloucester's heart "burst smilingly."
