Educated at Cambridge, MacMaster and Leicester universities, Dr. Stevens first became involved in practical theater work in the early 1980s. Ever since then, he has worked in a wide variety of genres, styles and contexts, writing, devising, and directing, covering plays from Aeschylus  to the post-modern.  His own plays have been performed in England, Wales, Scotland, Australia, Greece, and Lebanon.  He has been teaching  numerous theater and drama courses, both critical and practical, as well as conducting workshops and teaching  playwriting. His often highly experimental work, mixing elements from different genres and epochs with a critical approach to theatrical performance, is described in his website www.lostgreekplays.com. He moved to Greece in 1995, where he also teaches theater to International Baccalaureate students. Presently, he teaches Attic Tragedy on the College Year in Athens program. He is the author of How Plays Tell Stories (2006).
