Gavin Cameron-Webb


Gavin is delighted to return to the Vienna’s English Theatre where he staged Ronald Harwood’s Quartet in 2001. Other productions at this theatre include Woman in Black, I Ought to Be in Pictures, Sylvia and I Hate Hamlet.

He has just completed a thirteen years as Artistic Director of the Studio Arena Theatre in Buffalo, NY. During his tenure he directed 34 plays and produced over 90 productions, of which 7 were World Premieres.

He started a second stage to produce more controversial and cutting edge plays such as Angels in America and How I Learned to Drive. In the mid 1990’s, he mounted a critically acclaimed five-year Retrospective of the Major Works of Tennessee Williams.

More recently he has presided over a highly successful new play initiative; for the past four years Studio Arena has been active in commissioning and producing new work with an emphasis on the local area. The most celebrated of these plays was the stage adaptation of Lauren Belfer’s best selling novel City of Light, which Gavin directed for the opening of the 2001/02 season.

His work outside of Buffalo has mainly been devoted to Shakespeare. Last summer he directed Macbeth, and before then two summer productions of The Tempest. He has staged over a third of the canon and looks forward to his next Shakespeare, which will be Timon of Athens.

Gavin will leave Buffalo at the end of July to take up residence in Denver, Colorado with his wife, Director Jane Page. His daughter, Madeleine, is a jewellery designer working in Brighton, England.
