Phyllida Lloyd CBE is a British stage and film director who has directed several Shakespeare productions for both the RSC and SGT. Known predominately for her work directing films such as Mama Mia! and the Iron Lady, Lloyd has had a penchant for putting women centre stage throughout her career. In 2003 she directed an all-female The Taming of the Shrew at SGT starring Janet McTeer and Kathryn Hunter. The production received positive reviews despite the amount of criticism other all-female and selectively cast female-in-male-roles productions had endured.
