John Retallack has been a theatre director for over thirty years.

His production of Pink Mist by Owen Sheers toured the UK in Spring 2017, after sustained runs at Bristol Old Vic and The Bush Theatre in London.

“John Retallack’s fluid, dream-like production physically matches the script’s verve – his tightly drilled company of six deploying synchronised moves and graceful slow-motion to bring home the way the shock-waves of war can travel deep beneath the skin.”

Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

He was the founding Artistic Director of Actors Touring Company/ATC London (1977-85) and Artistic Director of Oldham Coliseum (1985-88).  He was Artistic Director of Oxford Stage Company at The Oxford Playhouse (1989-99) and founding Artistic Director of the new writing company, Company of Angels (2000-2010). From 2010 to 2013 he was Associate Director at Bristol Old Vic where he remains an Associate Artist.

He has been a guest director of productions in America, Japan, India, Portugal, Belgium, Austria, Holland and Ireland. All of his companies have toured internationally and John’s work has been seen all over the world.
