‘The Exchange are delighted to welcome leading actress and screenwriter Dame Eileen Atkins who will be in conversation with the distinguished theatre director Richard Digby Day. Dame Eileen’s career has been filled with theatre, television and film as well as writing. Her recent one-woman show Ellen Terry with Eileen Atkins at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse weaved together the performances and lectures of the renowned Victorian actress to wide acclaim. She has recently played Queen Mary in The Crown, a Netflix drama series. Dame Eileen has a BAFTA and an Emmy in 2008 for her role in the TV drama Cranford and has received three Olivier awards along with 18 other international acting awards. She co-created Upstairs Downstairs with Jean Marsh. She was awarded a DBE in 2001, a Degree of Doctor of Arts by the City University of London in 2005, and a Degree of Doctor of Letters by Oxford University in 2010. A formidably intelligent - and witty woman!   Richard Digby Day is a British stage director and international professor and lecturer. Digby Day has been Artistic Director of multiple regional theatres in the UK: the Bournemouth Theatre Company, the New Shakespeare Company at the Open Air Theatre in Regent's Park, and the Welsh National Theatre Company. Additionally, his work has been seen in the West End and on tour extensively throughout the UK, Canada, Denmark, and Ireland. Particularly successful were his touring productions of Sondheim's A Little Night Music and Company, Shaw's The Devil's Disciple.’
