Who was Sir Barry Jackson?

Sir Barry Jackson was the founder and visionary of the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. He steered the company from its amateur formation in the early 1900s through to its establishment as a leading dramatic theatre on a national scale. His hands-on approach to all aspects of the theatre world, driven by his passion for credible and non-commercial play writing, delivered productions of exceptional quality.
