Gordon Craig


English modernist theatre practitioner, who worked as an actor, director and scenic designer, as well as developing an influential body of theoretical writings. Craig was the handsome son of actress Dame Ellen Terry, and a lover of Isadora Duncan, with whom he had a daughter, Deirdre Beatrice (1906–1913), who drowned at the age of six with another of Duncan's children, Patrick Augustus, and their nanny. With his wife and other lovers Craig had another nine children.

He died at Vence, France, on 29 July 1966, aged 94.

The Gordon Craig Theatre, built in Stevenage (the town of his birth), was named in his honour in 1975.
