Steven Rumbelow (also credited as Steve Rumbelow, July 30, 1949 − February 27, 2016), was a director in the entertainment industry for more than four decades.[1] He began in theatre at the Bristol Old Vic, subsequently becoming the youngest director for the Royal Shakespeare Company in London before forming Triple Action Theatre and then later starting on films. His career has been a melange between media productions and theatre ever since. Rumbelow operated his own production company in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Renegade Motion Pictures, with his wife, Rachel, until his sudden death from sepsis on February 27, 2016.[2]


Rumbelow has directed around 150 theatre productions around the world. He started his notable career in theatre working for Bristol Old Vic and the Royal Shakespeare Company. From this start he adapted Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus into a 60-minute play that was so successful, he began the show in 1971 and toured all over the world with it until the late nineties.[3]
