'I think Nik is a director of real promise and I recommend him to you without any reservation.' Simon Stephens, Playwright. Olivier Award Winner & Associate Artist, Lyric Hammersmith.
'Nik Partridge directed my play Stacy and I think did a great job, directing it with subtlety and mining it for everything it's worth. I was and am super impressed with his work.' Jack Thorne, Playwright. BAFTA Award Winner.
'I have worked with Nik on several projects, most significantly on Karl Kraus’ THE LAST DAYS OF MANKIND, and I am always impressed with his astute, discreet and humorous interventions as an assistant in the rehearsal process. He is an excellent dramaturge too and has a real and sophisticated interest in complex scripts. His own production, EDWARD GANT'S AMAZING FEATS OF LONELINESS! by Anthony Neilson, was a theatrical firework display and much enjoyed by the young audiences that packed out the Alma Theatre – and by myself. Though Nik has strong intellectual foundations, he loves the theatrical possibilities of theatre. I recommend Nik very strongly indeed and think he deserves to go very far.' John Retallack, Associate Director- Bristol Old Vic.
'A fiercely intelligent and insightful young director, with a clear attention to detail and understanding of the text.' Tamara Harvey, Director. Former Associate Director, Bush Theatre.
'I've known Nik since meeting him at NSDF in 2008. Even as a student director he seemed focused, tenacious and quietly serious about how to make a life for himself as a director. So I was really delighted to see him working in the professional sphere - his production of Jack Thorne's 'Stacy' in 2012 was truthfully performed and staged with simple flair. I am intrigued to see his future professional work.' Mark Rosenblatt, Associate Director, West Yorkshire Playhouse. Former Studio Associate, National Theatre Studio.
'I went to see Nik's production of 'Edward Gant’s Amazing Feats of Loneliness!' by Anthony Neilson. I thought it was a terrific production. Inventive, witty and absorbing. He had obviously worked very well with the actors. Totally recommend!’ Roger Haines. Director.
