Rosalind Hickson has been directing for over 20 years.

She originally trained as a teacher at the Central School of Speech and Drama before joining the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield as a trainee director. After gaining invaluable experience there under the late, inspirational Clare Venables, Rosalind co-directed the original studio workshop production of Five Guys Named Moe at the Royal National Theatre, London.

She subsequently worked at the Royal Shakespeare Company, in Stratford and London, as assistant director to Ian Judge, Nicholas Hynter, Terry Hands and Philip Prowse. These productions included, The Comedy of Errors, King Lear, Macbeth, Lord of the Flies, The Seagull and A Woman of No Importance.

Rosalind then returned to the Royal National Theatre to work with Tony Harrison on Square Rounds, and with Sir Richard Eyre on the transfer to the West End of the award-winning play Skylight, by David Hare, starring Sir Michael Gambon and Lia Williams. This was followed by Amy’s View which featured Dame Judy Dench.

Rosalind assisted Patrick Marber with the West End transfer of his play Closer, and Nicholas Hytner in his production of The Lady in the Van, by Alan Bennett, which starred Dame Maggie Smith at the Queen’s Theatre.

As assistant director to Laurence Boswell, Rosalind worked on Weekend in Rio, and with Madonna on Up for Grabs at the Wyndham's.

Rosalind then co-produced Crazy Ladies at the Edinburgh Festival and produced A Tribute to Nat 'King' Cole featuring Clarke Peters. This was followed by assistant-producing the 2004 UK tour of Joan Rivers: Broke and Alone.

Ros recently directed Panic Play and The Fun Factory at the Alma Theatre, Bristol.
