Career[edit]

Lloyd was the Associate Director of the Donmar Warehouse[3] from 2008 to 2011, where his 2010 production of Passion won the Evening Standard Award for Best Musical.[4] He was an Associate Artist at theatre company Headlong.[5]

In 2008 he directed The Pride at the Royal Court, for which he won the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre.[6] He was named a Rising Star by the Daily Telegraph in 2009.[7]

Trafalgar Transformed[edit]

In 2012 he launched Jamie Lloyd Productions with The Ambassador Theatre Group.[8] With this company, he presented a season of work in 2013 as Artistic Director of Trafalgar Transformed at Trafalgar Studios. The auditorium was reconfigured to accommodate the season, including raising the stage by over two metres.[9] The first season featured three productions: The Pride (which also went on a limited UK tour), The Hothouse starring Simon Russell Beale and John Simm, and Macbeth starring James McAvoy, which received an Olivier nomination for Best Revival. A second season opened in July 2014 with Richard III starring Martin Freeman, East is East starring Jane Horrocks and writer Ayub Khan Din, and The Ruling Class starring James McAvoy. [10]

In 2014, Lloyd was named the 20th Most Powerful Person in British Theatre by The Stage in their annual 'Stage 100' list. He was the youngest director to break into the list since Sam Mendes.[11]
