Old friends, actor Sophie Okonedo and director Dominic Cooke, open up about what it’s like to act and direct in some of the world's biggest theatres. They reflect on their lives in theatre, from drama school auditions to presidential compliments from the Obamas, when performing on Broadway in this, their Life in Stages.
Life in Stages is the National Theatre’s interview series profiling some of the biggest names in British theatre. Filmed on the empty Lyttelton stage, each episode features a pair of creatives reflecting on their stage careers, and revealing the funny, personal and poignant stories behind everything from their earliest theatre memory to their biggest professional highs and lows.
Life in Stages is produced by National Theatre and Wing.
