Terry Johnson: A Director's profile

With numerous awards under his belt, including two Oliviers and a Tony, Terry Johnson has directed, and written, some of Hampstead Theatre’s most popular and fastest selling hits of the past two years, Race (2013), Hysteria (2013) and Old Money (2012).

His relationship with Hampstead began 20 years ago, writing and directing multi-award winning play Dead Funny in 1994, starring Zoe Wanamaker and David Haig which went on to transfer to the West End. He also directed The Memory of Water (1996) and Cracked (1997). His play Imagine Drowning premiered at Hampstead Theatre in 1991, directed by Richard Wilson.

Terry’s other writing and directing credits include Insignificance (1982, Royal Court) which has Marilyn Monroe demonstrating the Theory of Relativity to Albert Einstein using balloons and a train set and Hitchcock Blonde (2003, Royal Court/The Lyric/West End) which explores Alfred Hitchcock’s infamous relationships with blonde actresses. Other directing credits include The Graduate (2001, West End), One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest (2004, West End), The Duck House (2013, West End) and Oh! What A Lovely War (2014, Stratford East).
