Henry Woolf was born in London, England in 1930. He has been an actor and director for sixty years and, when no one was looking, a writer too. He has worked with lots of top chaps such as Orson Welles, Lawrence Olivier, Peter O’Toole, and Peter Brook. In 1957 he persuaded Harold Pinter to write his first play, “The Room,” which Henry directed. For ten years Henry was artistic director of the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival. He taught at the University of Saskatchewan Drama Department for fourteen years, retiring as Head in 1997.
