A Northern Broadsides director has been nominated following his work on the Yorkshire theatre company’s 2013 production of Rutherford & Son.

Jonathan Miller has been entered into the Best Director category at this UK Theatre Awards.

The awards are the only in the nation to honour outstanding achievement in regional theatre throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Jonathan said: “It was a huge pleasure to have worked on such an amazing play which is so rarely performed, as well as an honour and privilege to have worked with one of the country’s leading theatrical institutions – Northern Broadsides.

“I am thrilled that the production and company have been recognised by the nomination.”

Set in 1912 and relocated to industrial Yorkshire, Rutherford & Son tells the story of iron-fisted John Rutherford as he battles the scheming rebellion of his eldest son and his daughter’s scandalous love-affair, while fighting to prevent the legacy of the family glassworks from shattering.

For the past 22 years the Dean Clough-basedNorthern Broadsides has impressed audiences with a repertoire that has won them many awards.
