Following brief spells as an actor and assistant stage manager, his first theatre productions were at the Northcott Theatre, Exeter. He then directed a series of productions at the Leeds Playhouse, and in 1985 became an Associate Director of the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. His productions in Manchester included Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT, Marlowe's EDWARD II, Schiller's DON CARLOS, Wycherley's THE COUNTRY WIFE and Robin Glendinning's MUMBO JUMBO.

Nicholas continues to work in theatre as well as film. He took up his post as Director of the National Theatre in April 2003.
