Biography

Edward Dick trained as an assistant director with renowned theatre company Cheek by Jowl.

One of the country's most exciting young directors, he has directed productions in theatres across the UK and abroad. Recent work includes The Pitchfork Disney at the Arcola; The Fastest Clock in the Universe at Hampstead Theatre; A Midsummer Night's Dream for Sydney Theatre Company; Twelfth Night at the Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park; Much Ado About Nothing in Singapore; and a hugely successful tour of Romeo and Juliet for Shakespeare's Globe.

His work in opera includes The Rape of Lucretia (Aldeburgh); Elektra (Opera de Nice); The Turn of the Screw (King's Head) and the world premiere of Tarik O'Regan's Heart of Darkness at the Royal Opera House. In 2013 he will direct Rossini’s Maometto II for Garsington Opera.

Ed's first short film, An Act of Love, written by Ash Ditta and starring Stephen Mangan, Gina McKee and Raquel Cassidy, premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival in 2010 and has played at festivals around the word. He has recently completed a second short, That Woman, a comedy drama by Amy Rosenthall, starring Maureen Lipman and Ben Caplan.

He has just directed his first project for television, a Little Cracker by Katy Brand for Hillbilly/Sky1.

He has several feature film projects in development.
