Thirty-eight-year-old Richard Jordan, a former Hethersett High School student and who grew up in Cringleford, is listed alongside the likes of actress Cate Blanchett, director Trevor Nunn, and fellow producer Cameron Mackintosh in the new list.

The achievement completes a golden year of awards for the producer who in March received a Laurence Olivier Award for the play Roadkill, a brutal drama about human trafficking which he co-produced with Theatre Royal Stratford East, the Barbican, and Pachamama Productions.

In summer 2013 Mr Jordan will co-produce the play’s American premiere with seasons in Chicago and New York.

Also in 2012, Mr Jordan co-produced Othello The Remix which was performed at Shakespeare’s Globe, in London, as well as in Germany and Edinburgh, and won the 2012 MTM UK Award for best musical and best lyrics. He also received the 2012 Scotsman Fringe First Award and Total Theatre Award for co-producing with Belgian company Ontroerend Goed the show All That is Wrong.

Mr Jordan discovered his love of theatre through visits as a child to the Norwich Theatre Royal. He is a patron of Norwich Playhouse, and was a patron for Norwich’s European City of Culture bid and the Norwich Theatre Royal 250 appeal. In 1998 he formed Richard Jordan Productions Ltd which has produced more than 170 productions in the UK and internationally.
