A Decade at the Donmar is a collection of some of the most evocative and beautiful theatre photography personally compiled and narrated by Michael Grandage, the Donmar's Artistic Director from 2002 to 2012. During his time, he worked with many of the UK's leading writers, actors, directors, designers and composers to create visually stunning productions that secured a reputation for the Donmar as one of the leading theatres in the world. With a repertoire that included new writing, European classics, British and American drama as well as musical theatre, the Donmar presented some of London's most memorable award-winning theatrical experiences, garnering critical acclaim at home and abroad. Although hundreds of photographs are taken for each production, only a handful are seen by the public. This book is a document celebrating the unseen work of some of the best photographers in the industry.
