About William Gaskill

WILLIAM GASKILL began directing at the Royal Court in 1957, when it was at the forefront of a theatrical revolution ushered in by Look Back in Anger. He was to direct equally groundbreaking work there, including Edward Bond's Saved with its controversial baby-stoning scene. In 1963 he directed the young Maggie Smith at Laurence Olivier's new National Theatre. He later joined Max Stafford-Clark to form Joint Stock, presenting some of the most significant work of the 70s and 80s. In a wide-ranging freelance career he has directed many productions of Brecht, Beckett and Shakespeare, and is currently an associate at RADA. He lives in North London.
