    Barrie Rutter OBE

    Founder & Artistic Director

    About Barrie Rutter OBE

    Born in 1946, the son of a Hull fishworker, Rutter grew up in a two-up two-down on the Hessle Road, the fishdock area of Hull, around the corner from Tom Courtney.

    At school, an English teacher frogmarched him into the school play because he had “the gob for it”, and feeling at home on stage, Rutter chose his future direction. There followed a period at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama and many years in the National Youth Theatre culminating in The Apprentices’ by Peter Tierson – a role specially written for him, a practice to be repeated later in his career.

    Seasons at the RSC in Stratford, London and Europe completed the 1970s. In 1980 he joined the National Theatre, a formative period. He met and worked closely with a poet who was to become his guru, Tony Harrison. Rutter performed in all three of Harrison’s adaptations, all written for the Northern voice: The Mysteries, The Orestia, and The Trackers of Oxyrhynchus. In Trackers, the part of Silenus was written especially for Rutter. It was this experience of performing in the northern voice that germinated the idea for Northern Broadsides.

    Trackers toured to a wool-combing shed in Salts Mill, three miles north of Bradford. This was to be Rutter’s ‘Damascus’. He was deeply affected by the raw emotion of speaking to a northern audience in a northern voice in a classical play.

    His agent suggested Rutter start his own company, and so he did. In 1992 Northern Broadsides was founded.

    His theatre work includes:~

    For the Royal Shakespeare Company:~ Henry IV, Henry V, Coriolanus and The Taming of the Shrew.

    For the Royal National Theatre:~ The Mysteries, The Crucible, Guys and Dolls, The Oresteia, The Rivals, Animal Farm, Martine and The Trackers of Oxyrhynchus .

    Executive Director

    About Sue Andrews

    Sue joined the company in 1993.

    Sue is responsible for all tour programming, finance and day to day running of the company.

    After training and working for a number of years as an actor in the early 70’s, Sue was invited to join a newly formed microfilm service company as office manager, using the secretarial skills she had acquired before drama school.  The business developed into one of the most successful of its kind. She left the company after the birth of her first child which coincided with a move to the north of England.

    Sue met Barrie Rutter in 1993 when he was with the National Theatre production of Trackers of Oxyrhynchus which toured to Bradford and where the idea of Northern Broadsides was born. The company was initially supported by Bradford Theatres for the first production – a 6 week tour of Richard III. After the tour, Sue volunteered to assist Barrie in organising the next production and before very long found herself raising funds in order to support a full time admin post which she has held ever since.

    “I have been extremely fortunate in being able to combine my experience and love of theatre with that of growing a small business, which has helped develop Northern Broadsides into the well respected and successful company it is today.”  Sue Andrews
