Kenneth Cavander’s plays, adaptations and translations have been widely performed both in the U.S. and abroad. In the U.S. he has been represented on Broadway and at many regional theatres, including the Guthrie Theatre, Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., the Yale Repertory Theatre, the Williamstown Theatre Festival. In the U.K., his work has been presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company and in London’s West End. His television plays and documentaries have been aired on PBS and network television and, in the U.K., on BBC Radio and BBC One, garnering several awards and nominations. In 2023 he will complete two new projects: the first, a double bill of films on the life of C.S. (The Narnia Chronicles) Lewis, on which he collaborated with the British film director Norman Stone, to be shot in and around Oxford in 2023; and a new adaptation of Sophokles Antigone, commissioned by the Westport Playhouse, that goes back to the original Greek text and highlights the raw political and suspense elements of the original.
