Patrick Tucker started directing for the stage in 1968, and for the screen in 1976, and has directed over 250 theatre productions and over 200 dramas for the screen (including one feature) at venues all over the world. His last stage work was Measure, For Measure for the Blackfriars Theatre in Virginia, and on screen a Russian sit-com Olympiada 80 filmed in Latvia (in Russian). He has lectured and run courses on the various aspects of acting and directing since the mid-1970s (presenting directing workshops for Raindance since 1997), and his books Secrets of Acting Shakespeare (Routledge 2nd Ed. 2017) and Secrets of Screen Acting (3rd Ed. Routledge 2014) contain many original insights – as do his workshops.
