Hytner Confirmed as Nunn Successor at NT???
Date: 24 September 2001
Several newspapers have reported this weekend that Nicholas Hytner will definitely take over from Trevor Nunn as artistic director of the National Theatre when Nunn's five-year contract next September. For several months, Hytner has been the perceived frontrunner in a long list which included the likes of Sam Mendes, Stephen Daldry and Jonathan Kent and a shortlist, reportedly compiled last month, which also numbered Jude Kelly, Max Stafford-Clark, John Caird and Howard Davies. An accomplished director of both stage and screen, Hytner is already a regular at the National where his credits have included The Madness of George III, The Recruiting Officer and, currently, Mark Ravenhill's Mother Clap's Molly House. An official announcement is expected this week after a meeting of the NT board.
