Peter Gill, OBE, was born in Cardiff in 1939 and educated at St. Illtyd's College, Cardiff. He started work as an actor, on stage and film. He was an army private in ZULU (1964) and a lieutenant in HMS DEFIANT (1962).
Much of Peter Gill's work has been for the theatre. He became an Assistant Director of the Royal Court Theatre in 1964 and an Associate Director in 1970. He was the founder Director of Riverside Studios in 1976, became Associate Director of the National theatre in 1980 and the founding Director of the Royal National Theatre Studio in 1984. He has produced many plays for the Royal Court and Royal National theatres, and details can be found on his website:
He has written or adapted a small number of plays for radio. The ones I have traced are as follows:
1965 Home Service(?) Berlin Resurrection
THE LOOK ACROSS THE EYES / LOVELY EVENING....2001
Gill's interest is in the buoyancy with which the human spirit carries on with the daily round in the face of catastrophe. The play starred Malanie Hill, Phillip Joseph and Richard Coyle, and the director was Mary Peate.
A PROVINCIAL LIFE....1970
