Look at the upcoming NT repertoire

 

What are your career highlights so far?

Discovering talent at a very early stage and watching it flourish

 

Who is the greatest influence on your career?

Walter Donahue, legendary RSC literary manager in the period when Howard Davies was running the Donmar Warehouse

 

What’s the best thing you’ve ever seen a the theatre?

Impossible question to answer, but high on the list would be the 7:84 production of Men Should Weep at the Edinburgh Festival in the 1980s and Robert Holman’s German Skerries at the Bush in 1976

 

 

Sebastian is the Associate Director (Literary) at the National Theatre. He was the first literary manager at the Bush from 1981 – 1985.
