Doran steps down at RSC to nurse terminally ill Sher

Gregory Doran is stepping down temporarily as artistic director of the Royal Shakespeare Company to take compassionate leave as he cares for his husband, the actor Sir Anthony Sher, who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness.

He will be replaced temporarily by his deputy, Erica Whyman, working with executive director Catherine Mallyon. Doran said he expected to return early in 2022.
