Caroline Steinbeis

Director for Stage and Screen

by John Ford
for The Globe Theatre, 2015


“Rising director Caroline Steinbeis rather brilliantly injects language accustomed to operatic emoting with a light sardonic touch, allowing so much comedy to be wrought that the tragedy comes as a thumping shock.”
**** The Independent

“Director Caroline Steinbeis presents a deft interpretation of this challenging text, wittily highlighting all its absurdities at the same time as she plumbs its depths. A dark gem.” **** Time Out

“Steinbeis finds her own approach, giving a contemporary twist to the classical style and, all of a sudden, it makes sense of the play.”

“Caroline Steinbeis injects as much dynamism as possible and emphasises Ford’s humour.”
